While the 3D Potterbot Micro 9 offers the great features of our upper-level models, this entry-level 3D ceramic printer comes in a smaller package and an affordable price. This 3D printer is not only perfect for the classroom environment, it allows individual artists to explore new technology in ceramic 3D printing.

The Potterbot Micro 9 is our entry level 3D ceramic printer and due to its affordable price and small build volume, it's the perfect entry-level 3D ceramic printer for the classroom environment, teaching institutions, ceramic venues, and individual artists interested in exploring new technology. It maintains all of the great features of our upper-level models, including the direct nozzle extrusion and our unique traveling X and Y bed.
While our other 3D printers are designed to handle your larger projects, our 3D Potterbot Micro 9 is more affordable, and perfect for traveling and transporting from one location to another. The Micro 9 uses standard stepper motors, making it more adequate for the smaller build envelope, and the timing belts are designed to decrease printing time by as much as 75%, making it ideal for for your smaller items. The 9th generation has a new uniform nozzle design for improved performance, across all of our printers. This allows you to interchange nozzles between all of our 3D clay printers, from the Micro to the Scara V3.
Our 3D Potterbot Micro 9 printer is designed utilizing our traveling X, Y, and Z axis, allowing the X-axis to travel smoothly on top of any flat surface. Designed using high-precison linear rails from IGUS, with a precision timing belt and stepper motors, the Z axis and extruder are able to use a reduction gearbox for faster and smoother prints. Whether in the classroom or industrial environments, the robust, high-quality, aluminum anodized linear rails with advanced plastic car bushings and smooth surface will extend the service life of your Micro 9 3D printer.
Our 3D Potterbot Micro 9 printer features a build envelope of up to 1 foot and the 1000 ml direct nozzle extruder. The unique feature of our 3D ceramic printers is the direct extrusion of real clay. Other brands use a compressed air system printing slip (watered down clay or alcohol diluted clay). The advantage of direct extrusion is 3D printing full body clay, or other paste-like materials. All materials used to build our clay printers are food grade, so get creative. Users can load the extruder tubes from any standard pug mill, or our new wall-mounted hand loader, allowing you to load up to 5 tubes in less than 10 minutes, and providing you the capability to load 60 lbs of clay. The tubes can be loaded manually, as well, using clay purchased from any ceramic supplier. Even at larger scales, the Micro 9 produces superior quality prints with less air bubbles and in less time, and at the highest printing speeds available in a machine this size.
We are always striving to improve our designs, and our 9th generation is no exception. Loaded with features and options, our 3D Potterbot Micro 9 stand-alone printer provides users with effortless operation capabilities. All you need is a simple SD card inserted with the G code in order to run your prints. Easily adjustable speeds and flows on the touch-screen give users complete control over the printer and extruder, and the interface allows you full control over every setting of the machine. The 9th generation brings a new wireless feature with a full web interface controlled over WiFi. You can now control and upload files to the printer from multiple devices simultaneously. The touch-screen is an integral part of our Arm core processor and main controller board.

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
