This project is about making a clay extruder. The goal of making this is to make the flow of clay better by adding a spiral to a tube that the clay goes through.
In order to make the spiral turn, a Nema17 stepper motor is added on top.
The clay comes in of an arm on the side attached to a hose that goes to a container.
When the container is pushed and the motor is on, the clay should come out of the extruder.
The extruder is designed to be attached on a Delta 3D printer. The motor weights a bit so this should be fastened to the middle part of the printer.
Steps of the project:
- Test printing
- Clay printer
- 3D modeling
- Structure of the printer
- Machine skeleton
- Clay exstruder
- Testing on the 3D printer
