Thermoplastic wood + help for Rapid Prototyping

  • #1
At Germany , Fraunhofer Institute succeeded to marry two paper manufacturing wood waste materials , lignin and cellulose
When you apply high pressure to lignin and cellulose mixture , you get a thermoplastic which is a wood material without pores and ebony density. You can melt it and injection molding.
Problems , molds cost 2500 dollars without design fee.
And you have to buy lots of liquid wood pellets costs too much.
I want to manufacture many things from this material , smoking pipes , violins , guitar parts and I need to know a way to manufacture complex big parts with small expense .
I wrote them many letters but they did not answer.
Do you know a way to sensitize lignin and cellulose mixture to red or green laser or to a dense daylight ?

Best ,
