For object generation, the Scara V4 is similar to the rest of the 3D Potter line ceramic printers. It’s is just like any other 3D printer which requires an STL file to be sliced by a third-party program.
The build envelope diagrams represent the 45 in Z height. We can do custom Z heights up to 9 feet and diameters up to 8.5 feet.
The Scara V4 build envelope is quite unique because it’s capable of printing 360 degrees with continuous rotation. This means you can create a huge vessel with the printer initially residing inside the vessel or structure. This opens up a whole another opportunity to print small habitat structures (houses). Larger printers are available for this potential habitat project.
The Scara V4 is capable of extreme speeds however speed is relative when it comes to ceramic 3D printing. Realistically you probably don’t want to exceed 130 mm/s. There are many factors which determine the speed like nozzle size, layer height, and achieving a good adhesion on interlayer of the clay.
The Scara V4 is very quiet, so it can be operated in any area without disturbing the surrounding environment.
