[OpenTRV-dev] Plastic recycling

From an OpenTRV point of view we don’t require very much special mechanically or thermally from the plastic in our boxes, so other than aesthetic issues (ie colour) for at least the non-mains boxes (beware of partially-conductive plastics) we could probably use anything.
The issue will be (a) will the feedstock be a thermoplastic that a 3D printer can melt and have set on demand and (b) at a range of temperatures and with other characteristics that are detectable and usable. On this second point the objects may have to be resliced to suit different feedstocks/mixtures for example.
Not impossible, but a much harder job.
