Paste Extruder

The custom, data-controlled (CNC) Paste Extruder, designed and built by the makerspace team, serves as a medium of engagement with local materiality. It also offers a platform for learning, teaching, and experimenting. It’s 1st task: 3D printing clay. Local and visiting collaborators helped bring this task to fruition during the “Turning the Wheel” event (11-23 May 2022). Build details with some initial parameters can be found at https://wikifactory.com/@kh/turning-the-wheel

Our future aims are to acquire more expertise surrounding additive manufacturing; bigger and better ceramic prints, possible organic paste recipes and large format (recycling plastics) pellet extrusion.
