Ceramic 3D Printing Accuracy

Ceramic 3D printing is different from ordinary 3D printing due to materials and processes.
Ceramic 3D printing uses viscous fluid. After printing, the material will shrink, and the material will shrink after sintering. The shrinkage rate is about 11% in the XY direction and about 22% in the Z-axis direction. The shrinkage rate of clay and different sintering curves in different regions is different.
Therefore, ceramic 3D printing accuracy generally refers to the smallest layer thickness and smallest wire diameter of the printing. The layer thickness of Eazao Zero can be set to 0.4-1mm. As the picture shows:

Eazao Zero can use 0.6mm nozzle, you can see here: Nozzles

The smallest nozzle diameter that Eazao Zero can use depends on the particle size of the material. The finer the material, the smaller the nozzle diameter that Eazao Zero can use, which has nothing to do with the 3D printer.

If the particle size of the material is too large, the nozzle with too small diameter is prone to nozzle clogging. In addition, when the material is at the nanometer level, the material may undergo nano-aggregation, and it is easy to block the nozzle. In short, there is no restriction on the minimum diameter of the Eazao Zero nozzle, provided that you need to prepare a material with a sufficiently small particle size yourself.

The Eazao Zero extruder adopts standard luer fittings, which can be compatible with various types of nozzles. You can install nozzles of various diameters that you purchase yourself.

The standard Luer adapter at the nozzle of Eazao Zero: Noozle adapter

Eazao Zero can provide nozzle sets, Pink: 0.6 mm, Grey: 1.2 mm, Green: 1.6 mm, Blue: 2.2 mm: Nozzles
