3D printed Earthware

Post by wilsonj » Mon Jul 22, 2013 11:03 am

An example of the new laybrick filament. Printed at .2mm. I think the imperfections add to the character of the urn while the just visible horizontal lines give the impression it was turned. The material also weighs similar to clay and even has a cold feel to it, unlike plastic.

Too bad it hasn't got the strength of ceramics.

And a close up.

Hi Jamie
that is very impressive. What are the dimensions of the antique earthenware vase you just 3D printed.

Roller, it was printed at .2mm, PLA temp setting, normal. So nothing really special, although I did find the filament would slip without the new feeder I sent you.

Oh and I used a raft too! It came away ok, but best to remove rafts early as the material will dry out and harden over a few hours.

Great ... thanks ... sounds easy. I'll probably run it through the Brutstruder first as the Up is busy printing churches :) Curiously, this cold snap has completely broken my adhesion for clear ABS.

How fragile is it? I've heard it is like a tortilla. Do you expect it to last?

Yeah, it's a bit tortilla chip like. Not very hard to break.

Just to be sure, Jaimie, when I finally get around to trying mine: you told the Up it was printing PLA, and you didn't do any resistor temp mod?

Those prints look fantastic.

Thanks,
Julia

I printed it at PLA settings as per Jamies results and support removal was easy. I might try printing hotter with a reduced ABS setting to see if I can get a less brittle, more plastic result.

Thanks Julia. Yes as Roller stated, just standard PLA temps.
