The 3D Potterbot 10 PRO is the upgraded version of the Potterbot Micro 10 printer. The size is larger and it utilizes hybrid closed loop stepper motors. These motors nearly double its power, allowing you to make grand designs.
NOTE: 3D Universe is authorized to sell this product in the United States of America, only.
The 10 PRO is the first printer in our lineup that uses hybrid motors on every axis. Utilizing the hybrid stepper motor with our clay extruder gives you faster extrusion speeds and higher volume output. This means you can use larger nozzles AND your print time will be reduced. The hybrid stepper motor on the extruder is capable of higher forces so a thicker paste material can be extruded. The motors have their own internal torque settings, so if there is a blockage, they will shut themselves off automatically.
As the name suggests, this printer is preferred by professionals who like to print multiple vessels at a time, or many single prints back to back.
3D Potter ceramic 3D printers use high quality anodized aluminum rails. These rails are robust and have a smooth surface, allowing for easy movement of parts while being able to withstand classroom or industrial environments.
The unique feature of our 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 printing full body clay, or other paste-like materials. All materials used to build our printers are food grade, so get creative.
We keep improving our 3D printer designs. The 10th 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 interface allows you full control over every setting of the machine.
The 10th gen has a new uniform nozzle design for improved performance, across all of our printers. This allows you to interchange nozzles between all of our printers, from the Micro to the Scara V4.

The easiest way to load extruder tubes is with a pugill. For best results, a de-airing pug mill and a double auger will give you better performance than a single auger.
Although a single auger is adequate, the consistency of the clay is more critical when it comes to loading the tubes. The consistency of the clay should be similar to standard throwing clay, but wetter. This can be accomplished by running the clay through the pug mill and adding a small quantity of water. If too much water is added to the clay the pug mill can actually not function sufficiently enough to load the tubes. This happens because the auger has no traction against the side of the pug mill as the clay mixture becomes too loose. It also depends on the pug mill and its ability to forcefully push the clay. It is necessary to have an adaptor for the nozzle of the pug mill to attach the polycarbonate tube for loading.
Using a 25 lb. bag of prepared clay, cut the clay into 4 pieces and put a microfiber towel in between the 4 pieces. Add 15 ounces of water to the bag, close the bag and make it airtight. Wait until the water has penetrated the clay, approximately one to two days. Now using the moist clay roll it into a cylinder a little bit smaller than the inside of the tube you are loading.
Put the nozzle on the tube with tape over the end and gently tap the clay into the tube. Make sure to tap the tube and nozzle on a soft surface. This is the best method to load your tubes without a pug mill.
We now offer an easy way of handloading tubes without the added expense of purchasing a large pug mill. Although a de-airing pug mill is by far the best way to load the tubes, this wall-mounted loader is a very good second choice.

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...
