- 3D Potter's smallest model in the Scara lineup designed to have the full functionality of Scara printers, but able to work in confined spaces.
- Duet Web Control is a fully developed UI for the Scara
- No Software requirements, access the interface via a web browser!
- This is a dedicated heavy duty purpose-built robot driven by sophisticated harmonic drive units used in large industrial robots
- Can be positioned on a substantial table top and you can start printing right away within a limited envelope area. Or you can give it its own dedicated space for partial or full envelope.
The 3D Potterbot Scara Mini v1 ceramic 3D printer is the smallest model in the Scara lineup. It is designed to have the full functionality of our Scara printers, but able to work in confined spaces.
For object generation, the Scara Mini V1 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. We recommend Simplify3D or Cura, and then loading the file to the SD card in the printer, which can be done over WiFi.
The Scara Mini V1 ceramic 3D printer 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 Mini V1 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 Mini V1 is very quiet, so it can be operated in any area without disturbing the surrounding environment.
Whether on the table top or on the floor, the Scara Mini V1 will require direct mounting for maximum stability. This is achieved with multiple screws to secure the printer to the surface it is on. If you choose to use a tabletop it must be of substantial construction, the minimum is 1.5" thick heavy plywood or wood construction. If a inadequate table is used, the results from the printer will be diminished depending on the build envelope and speed at which the prints are created with.
