up until recently, 3D printing has largely gone hand in hand with plastic. yet recently, makers are starting to break the mould, experimenting with using 3D-printing technology for metal, yarn, or even foam. the latest expanse in this field comes comes from clayXYZ, a desktop 3D printer for ceramics. with some of the most elegant results yielded from a 3D printing technique, clayXYZ promises to be a revolutionary tool for individual ceramicists and sculptures who wish to design their creations digitally, yet sculpt them from clay.

dubbed the ‘most user-friendly desktop clay 3D printer ever,’ all the user need do is load the clay, download the pattern for the desired model, and click start to sit back and enjoy the process of creation. the digital printer comes with a 3D model library, opening up the world of ceramics to those with no experience of 3D design. nonetheless—for experienced potters, the objects can be re-sculpted by hand and glazed, before being fired in a kiln.

clayXYZ can be used to sculpt with many different types of clay, all loaded into the printer via an extrusion device—which can be compatible with many existing FDM 3D printers. the device uses an air compressor to perfectly remove any bubbles from the clay, that might cause it to shatter in the kiln. the device boosts the clay print speed by 15 percent an enhances the precision of the printer from 2MM up to 0.8 MM.

rather than using non-resusable ABS or PLA plastics like previous 3D printers, the team behind clay XYZ recognize that clay is a sustainable, natural and affordable material that can be recycled and reused. clay can be beendlessly modified to print out custom cups, bowls, vases, busts, and more. the resulting models are delicately textures and elegant, worthy of any industrial 3D printer, yet easily created by individuals in their own houses or studios.
