Ceramic 3D Printing Kits Can Convert FDM 3D Printers Into Clay Deposition Equipment.
Jan 12, 2018

StoneFlower, a 3D printing company based in Munich, has developed a ceramic 3D printing kit that allows ordinary FDM 3D printers to print objects on clay, porcelain and other materials.


The new 3D printer kit is the brainwave of the German start-up StoneFlower, which is made up of two Russian engineering scholars Anatoly Berezkin and Stanislav Mironov.In Dusseldorf, Max Planck institute and technical university of Munich, respectively, after completing 3 d printing technology research, Berezkin and Mironov StoneFlower is established in early 2017, to develop 3 d printing pseudoplastic fluid with high viscosity, such as clay and paste the new solution.


Compatible with most of the FDM 3D printers in the market, this suite can be used for a variety of purposes: printing ceramics, porcelain and glaze;Try the 3D printing of resin, pulp, wax and even food.Making custom jewelry from metal clay;Or automatically store the paint on a printed circuit board of paint or solder paste.

The kits is made up of two parts: a universal print head with auger extruder, compatible with most FDM printer, can from manual preparation of clay industrial mill (simulation) to remove air bubbles and nonuniformity, and the injection pump for viscous liquid and paste.


The printing nozzle can stack up to 0.3 millimeters of thin layer material, which is called "very precise" and is safer than air compressors, with a capacity of about 500 milliliters or 900 grams of clay.These dual components are the first manual cleaning devices that can be easily assembled and dismantled on the market, StoneFlower said.


This simple maintenance makes the ceramic 3D printing suite cheap to maintain, and the product itself will be fair pricing.Starting in January 2018, Kickstarter can offer up to 450 euros or $535 (early bird), which makes the solution about 10 times cheaper than the low-end ceramic 3D printer on the market.
