1.What materials can I print?
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).
2.Is it possible to do any pre or post processing?
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.
3.How fast can CERAMBOT print?
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.
For any layer height or nozzle width, the best printing speed is 15 to 25 mm per second.
4.What is the accuracy or resolution of the printer?
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.
5.Does the printer have a warranty?
Our warranty applies only to mechanical and electronic components and is backed by a 180-day warranty.
6.Is it safe to print with clay?
Printing with clay is safe. The clay you use is no different from the materials used in ceramic stores around the world.
7.What type of food can CERAMBOT print?
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.
