Studio Under, a design and research studio based in Israel, claimed that they have built the largest ceramic 3D printer ever made.
Founded in 2012 by Eran Gal-Or, Liat Akerman and Omer Merzel, Holon Institute of Technology grads, Studio Under focus on designing and printing ceramic products and selling them world-wide. In 2013, the studio unveiled colored ceramic 3D printing, a printing process that enables affordable multiple-color prints.
"We love 'playing' with new technology and invent machines, with them we make ceramic products, in our small '3d factory'."
Since then, Studio Under has been refining the design of ceramic 3D printer and printing technology. Studio Under released a video (see below) demonstrating the development of its large and fast ceramic 3D printing. The 3D Printer can print ceramic and almost all types of paste-like materials (e.g.: Metal pastes, plastic resins, concrete etc).
It features a large build volume of 800 x 800 x 850mm, with a print speed of 450mm /hour (Z axis). It has a feeding cartridge of 20 Litters, capable of printing very big objects. According to Eran Gal-Or, the extruder is a custom-made and can deliver even the most corrosive material found in the world.
The images below show a large ceramic vase printed on Studio Under's ceramic printer. Design Software: Autodesk Shapeshifter.
