What’s the difference between CERAMBOT Pro and CERAMBOT Air?2020-02-28T09:35:14+08:00

CERAMBOT Pro uses electric actuators as power, you don’t need to buy other accessories.CERAMBOT Air uses air pressure as power, and you also need to buy an air compressor yourself.

What type of food can CERAMBOT print?2020-02-13T08:08:43+08:00

We do not recommend printing food. The main materials of CERAMBOT are PVC, nylon and  stainless steel. It can print any food paste with the correct viscosity and no hard, sticky or fibrous.

Is it safe to print with clay?2020-02-13T08:08:27+08:00

Printing with clay is safe. The clay you use is no different from the materials used in ceramic  stores around the world.

Does the printer have a warranty?2020-02-13T08:08:01+08:00

Our warranty applies only to mechanical and electronic components and is backed by a 180-day  warranty.

What is the accuracy or resolution of the printer?2020-02-13T08:07:38+08:00

The best practice is a ratio of 1 to 2, and a layer height of 0.8 mm is best printed with a 1.6 mm nozzle. With our 0.6 mm nozzle, very fine and soft clay can be as low as 0.3 mm per layer.

The best result is a layer height between 0.5 and 1.5 mm and a larger nozzle. However, the  printout is still clay and will deform when dry. Solid or multi-walls are not recommended unless a  large degree of stability or heavy post-processing (such as engraving) is required.

For better printing parameters, we can’t provide much advice and still need to explore the  necessary printing techniques.

How fast can CERAMBOT print?2020-02-13T08:09:39+08:00

The print speed depends on many variables:

The type of clay you use.
The hardness of the clay.
The height and line width you have chosen.
Printed model.

For any layer height or nozzle width, the best printing speed is 15 to 25 mm per second.

Is it possible to do any pre or post processing?2020-02-13T07:57:45+08:00

All pre and post treatments follow a standard pottery process. After printing, you can still shape or process clay like any other traditionally crafted work.

What materials can I print?2020-02-13T07:56:44+08:00

We recommend using clay to print, but as long as they are smooth and free of particles or fibers, you can print almost any viscous fluid. Any clay can be used with the CERAMBOT extruder. After the clay is mixed, it is necessary to mix the printed shape with water according to the nozzle size.  You can use a wide variety of clay blends while using a hair dryer for accelerated drying while printing.

We offer standard clay mud powder. The clay mud powder is ground from high white mud. The  quality ratio of clay and water: clay: water = 100:25 (±3).

What software can I use?2020-02-13T08:27:59+08:00

Modeling software: Fusion 360, 123D, Meshmixer, SolidWorks
Slice software: Cura, Slic3r
Other software: Repetier host, Notepad++

What else do I need after installing CERAMBOT?2020-02-12T07:57:56+08:00

You also need to purchase an electric kiln for firing ceramics. If you are buying a CERAMBOT Air, you will also need at least 0.8 MPa air compressor. For better printing and printing efficiency, we recommend that you purchase a clay machine.

What is it the voltage currently running?2020-02-12T07:57:56+08:00

The printer’s operating voltage is between 110 and 250V and 50 to 60Hz.

Is your hardware open source?2020-02-12T07:57:56+08:00

You can adjust and modify our printer as needed. Its CPU is based on the open source Arduino  mega + ramps 1.4 setup.  However, in this case we are unable to provide a wide warranty. We  have opened some of the source code and can download it from here.

If I forgot to clean the extruder, now it is stuck?2020-02-12T07:57:56+08:00

Disconnect the extruder from the printer and place it in a glass filled with water.
Make sure it is not submerged in the middle of the flexible coupling under the motor and  gearbox! Let it soak for about an hour.

How to clean and maintain the extruder?2020-02-12T07:57:56+08:00

Follow the steps below to fully repair the extruder. If it only needs some clay or some hardware  needs to be removed, just brush with water.

How to maintain CERAMBOT?2020-02-12T08:05:57+08:00

As with any machine, it is best to clean your CERAMBOT after each print. Use a damp cloth to remove the clay from the base, aluminum and steel parts. You need to clean and lubricate the  linear guides. At the same time, the belt is still tight every month and the dust and clay on the  rails are removed.
