3D Potter printers use high quality anodized aluminum rails. These rails are robust and have a smooth surface, allowing for easy movement of parts while being able to withstand classroom or industrial environments.
The unique feature of our 3d ceramic printers is the direct extrusion of real clay. Other brands use a compressed air system printing slip (watered down clay or alcohol diluted clay). The advantage of direct extrusion is 3D printing full body clay, or other paste-like materials. All materials used to build our clay printers are food grade, so get creative.
We keep improving our designs. The 10th generation brings a new wireless feature with a full web interface controlled over WiFi. You can now control and upload files to the printer from multiple devices simultaneously. The interface allows you full control over every setting of the machine. Interface preview instructions video below.
The 10th gen has a new uniform nozzle design for improved performance, across all of our printers. This allows you to interchange nozzles between all of our 3D clay printers, from the Micro to the Scara V4.

Take your favorite pottery clay and wet it so that it is too wet to throw and you are ready to go. You will want to experiment with the wetness level to get it to print correctly for your projects.
