rapid prototyping and three-dimensional printing have been around for some years, but unfold lab as
successfully built a DIY ceramic printer. the design is based off an open source project and prints wet
clay from its nozzle, which can then be placed in a kiln and fired. the machine uses powder clay which is
mixed with water and printed out using a syringe. to test their design unfold wanted to print a ceramic
vessel which would be difficult using traditional techniques. so they drafted a double walled vessel with
fins connecting the two walls. the result was successful and they fired the vessel along with a number of
other testing pieces that demonstrate the printers effectiveness.
