If you already own a 3D printer and would like to have the possibility to 3D print pottery and ceramics you may be interested in a new ceramic 3D printing kit called the StoneFlower, designed and created by developer Anatoly Berezkin based in Munich, Germany. StoneFlower has been designed to provide a user-friendly upgrade for your existing desktop 3D printer that provides a robust, precise 3D printing head that is capable of printing ceramics, porcelain and pastes and is not just limited to clay.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the StoneFlower Ceramic 3D Printing kit which is available to back via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges starting from €375 or £334. If all goes well worldwide shipping of the kits is expected to take place during April 2018.
The ceramic 3D printing kit consists of a powerful syringe pump and a printing head which is swapped out for your existing filament 3D printing head or similar. Once fitted a wide variety of ceramic prints can be created which can be further glazed and kiln fired if required.
