Clay 3D printing

Clay 3D printing is a type of ceramic 3D printing concerned with the extrusion of clay pastes, typically for pottery, sculpture, or architectural components.

Although it relies upon extrusion, clay 3D printing can be very different to FFF. Some clay 3D printers combine the hopper, extruder, and printhead into a single syringe-style component. Others use a compressed air system or a mechanical ram to move clay from an external container to the printhead. Once printed, the clay is left to dry then fired in a kiln.

The accuracy of clay printers is low, and most systems cost under $10,000.
