I was wondering whether plastic extruded by a Makerbot would be suitable as a hot liquid container. Would there be any toxicity issues or other problems?
I'd start here....
Unfortunately, we don't recommend that you use MakerBotted items for eating or drinking -- the plastics we use are not food-safe. In particular, don't use printed ABS objects with hot liquids or alcohol.
@ ethan 8 or 9 months ago i would of agreed with you and 8 to 9 months later im about to given a roll of food safe PLA that comes with a certificate to try out for the exact purpose of holding food. Totally natural in colour , and without any metals to contaminate
