Intro of LDM Journal / Week 28

During the summer of 2023 I decided to take on a project of converting a 3d printer to print clay, via a process called LDM, Liquid Deposition Modeling, it is essentially a form of additive manufacturing.

This section of my site will be devoted to posting about this project, which at this point is mostly speculative research, but may at some point turn into something more realized.

This decision was inspired by seeing both the work of Jonathan Keep and also some work by Studio RAP out of the Netherlands. Mr. Keep appears to be a pioneer of 3d printing clay and has posted online much of his work and data. This resource has been a really big help in my progress, and without his guide to 3d printing clay I am not sure I would have begun.
