The 3D Potterbot Scara Elite v2 is our largest model for 3D cement and ceramic printing. Built with cement printing in mind, it comes with a distal arm fitted for a pump. This machine is capable of printing multiple large objects non-stop. It is designed to be used with a continuous flow pump to print structures and walls.
The Scara Elite v2 is a refined viable large-scale ceramic 3D printer. The Elite prints with clay or cement and has a much larger build volume than the Scara v4. The advanced design and substantial construction can handle onboard loads like the 3D Potter 4000ml clay extruder or a hose assembly. Where the v2 really shines is when it's coupled with a large capacity continuous high-pressure hose extrusion system which can deliver clay loads between 85 - 250 lbs of continuous extrusion.
The Scara Elite v2 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 Elite v2 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. Another unique ability is printing multiple objects within the specified envelope in a sequential mode. For instance you could print a particular vessel starting on the far left side and continue to print these vessels until there is no more space left.
