The aim of this project is the building of an Open Source large extrusion system able to manage the extrusion of clay with a humidity of 18%, which means a great improvement in comparison with the technology based in air compression. With this achievement we get a higher stability of the printed piece due to the higher strength of the drier clay.

The system is composed by two elements: the extruder and the tank (explained in this page).

In our WikiFactory page you can find all the information needed to fabricate this 3D printer and contribute to the project if you wish.

This is a scheme of the goals at the beginning of the project:

The tank is formed by a cylinder of 15cm interior diameter and 80 cm long, with a final volume of 15 liters. So for we can load 40Kgs of clay, which allow us to print large pieces up to 1 meter high, and 60 cm of diameter.

It is a silent system, since we removed the air compressor and we are using a big stepper motor.
