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, 195° nozzle temp, no heatbed, printing time was more then 5 hours, kaisertech filament white was used.
