Wasp LDM Clay Extruder Kit 3.0

WASP's New clay extruder Kit with an extruder, LDM WASP Extruder 3.0, for clay 3D printing and offers you the latest updated version. WASP Clay Kit 3.0 with a 3 litre tank, includes LDM WASP Extruder 3.0 fluid dense material extruder. The kit does not include the compressor. Any compressor with a pressure of at least 8 bar can be connected.


3L Tank

The new WASP Clay Kit for clay 3D printing includes an aluminium tank with a capacity of 3 litres. Previous experiments with syringes did not allow medium-sized prints due to the scarcity of the mixture they could contain. To refill or clean the tank, simply open the two caps located at the ends. Inside, a piston with two 4-bar seals pushes the material along the 12 mm diameter Teflon tube that feeds the extruder. On the rear closing cap, there is a safety valve calibrated at 8 bar. The tank holder is equipped with a pressure regulator and a non-return valve.


Design

Inside the chamber, the outgoing material is conveyed to a screw that pushes it with a power that would be impractical with a common pressure extruder. This technology allows the air to escape upwards thus eliminating the risk of finding bubbles inside the dough. The presence of bubbles would cause, as in normal pressure extruders, an interruption of the flow that would ruin the print. Furthermore, again thanks to the use of the screw, the density of the printing materials is higher: in this way, the times of the change of state between fluid and solid are reduced and consequently, the risks of collapse of the piece are eliminated. Both the screw and the nozzle are easily replaceable in case they wear out.


Adaptibility

The WASP Clay Kit, created to be mounted on WASP printers, is adaptable to most existing machines.
After printing the support cover that allows it to be adapted to other 3D printers - whose source files can be downloaded on the WASP website - the assembly of the LDM WASP Extruder 3.0 extruder on other machines is very simple: just connect the extruder in place of the usual feeder and set the value of E in "number of steps per millimetre" to 400. These settings are provided by the main Slicing software, Slic3r or Cura.
