3D printing of ceramic material – Exciting developments in the 3D printing sector

The Internet portal All3DP writes in an interesting article about a Kickstarter campaign to finance a low-cost 3D ceramic printer:

“As anyone who has sat for hours molding pottery by hand can attest to, ceramic 3D printing has the potential to provide the world of art and architecture with untapped creativity. At the moment, there is a finite amount of solutions involving ceramic 3D printing technology, but nonetheless, this niche market is growing steadily.”

 

All in all, a very interesting and worth reading report about this exciting development in the 3D area. Click here for the full article on all3dp.com.

Video: 3D- Print of double wall Tealight-Holder voronized, very beautiful and decorative !

3D-Print of a beautiful Tealight Holder printed with white PLA 1.75 mm.

It is double walled in Voroni- style that gives nice effects when a tealight is placed in it, the bottom is designed to hold a standard tealight.

Although i know PLA is not the best material for this object due to the higher temperature inside of a tealight, maybe i make another print in abs later. Object was sliced with CURA, no support, but raft needed for better bed adhesion and stability during the printing process.

Printed with anycubic i3 mega, 0.8mm nozzle, 195Β° nozzle temp, no heatbed, printing time was more then 5 hours, kaisertech filament white was used.

Video: Rodin – Thinker – as 3D Print, Voroni-style

3D- Print of a little Rodin- like statue – Thinker – voronized to save printing material πŸ˜‰

Printed with kaisertech black PLA 1.75mm on an anycubic i3 mega 3D-Printer 0.8mm nozzle, 195Β° nozzle Temp., no heatbed, on buildplate with Tape, without any support or raft needed.

Result was quite nice, some stringing, (don’t know exactly the reason, maybe PLA-Problems). Sliced with CURA, Timelapse video was generated by the wonderful octoprint. Further questions give me a comment, thumbs up on youtube would be nice, enjoy.

Video: 3D- Print of intertwined hands

This is a 3D Print of 2 Hands intertwined. Printed on an anycubic i3 mega 3D-Printer with white PLA 1.75mm. 0.8mm nozzle, 195Β° nozzle temp. no heatbed, printed on tape for better bed adhesion ( i found out that this method is for me the most reliable for this printer, printing on ultrabase print bed with heated bed very often didn’t work and furthermore consumes lots of electricity. Nozzle size may be to big for this type of print but i was too lazy to change prior printing this object. The object needed some support, i reduced the amount that cura typically generates by increasing the overhang threshold to 70Β°.)

Density of support was also reduced to 10 %, although it was still quite difficult to remove it from the object after printing, maybe next time i’ll reduce density to 5% for this object. Video was generated by the wonderful octoprint with time-lapse utility.
