3D Printing with Clay, Ceramic and maybe even chocolate
Kits that look worth it.
Make Your Own Ceramic 3D Printer Comunity
I feel like the only thing that may be required is a sealed chamber filled with clay with a stepper motor and a bit of tubing.
Still don’t know what the auger is for
“This technology allows the air to outflow upward , eliminating the probability of finding bubbles inside the mixture. Like for a common pressure extruder, if there were bubbles the flow would be interrupted and the print would be damaged.”
The bubbles get eliminated. To use a syringe type loader you would need to size the tube to the model and you would need to be certain there were no bubbles in the mixture. An auger is the method for pumping concrete in one of those boom trucks you see at a construction site.
@Grant-Fraser should have probably read the shop page…
I wonder if there’s already an industrial off the shelf part that we can use for the piston.
This looks really interesting
I don’t have any idea how the clay printers work but could help to mix the liquid clay itself.
I did post this.
But I never posted this and wanted to.
I was also looking at this.
@Ron_Ron I searched for the xyz prnter and nothing showed up.
$350 for backing this clay extruder. I am almost tempted to get one and make the cnc part of the machine.
Only at Makerspace would people start thinking, 'how can we build our own?" Curiously following, and happy to help where I can.
I am looking at building a delta clay extruder offered by Jonathan Keep on youtube http://www.keep-art.co.uk/Self_build.html is his site with all the instructions
