Ceramics is durable, food safe, heat resistant, mechanically strong, cheap, recyclable and sustainable material that is suitable for both a prototyping and a small serial production in handicraft, art, design, and architecture.
Our printers and KITs use paste deposition technique. It allows printing at much higher speed, as compared to desktop FDM printers, which use thermoplastics. One can easily control the process choosing the nozzle diameter in the range from 1 to 7 mm. The layer thickness may vary from tiny 0.3 mm for precise printing up to 3 mm for maximal performance.
StoneFlower” 3D printer is designed as a simple, accurate, fast and versatile instrument for researchers, architects, artists, designers, and hobbyists. First version of the printer came to the market in May 2018.
Since September 2018 we sell thrid version of the full-metal StoneFlower 3D printer, equipped with advanced Duet3D electronics, colorfull touch-screen, remote control via WiFi, Igus bearings, which work in humid and dusty environment without lubrication, strong Nema23 motors, silent, power-efficient TMC drivers , providing smooth motion at high speed.
Anatoly Berezkin, Dipl. Eng., PhD in Chemistry, Habil. in Physics and Mathematics, CBM.
Being a researcher at the Max-Planck Institute in Düsseldorf, Anatoly got acquainted with 3d printing of resins from viscous components in the year 2013. During his collaboration with the German company Covestro AG he published a couple of research papers about the principles of this process.
In the next few years at Technical University of Munich (TUM), he gained a hands-on experience in the development of automated research equipment, building CNC routers and 3D printers. In the year 2017 he studied Business Management, developed Ceramic 3D Printing KIT, and prepared the launch the start up around it.
Stanislav Mironov, holding a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich, brings a rich tapestry of interdisciplinary expertise encompassing technical, production, and persuasive skills. With over a decade of professional experience in the 3D printing industry, Stanislav has been a driving force in both the inception and growth of the Stoneflower3d project.
During periods of full-time engagement with other companies, which occurred subsequently, Stanislav was unable to actively contribute to the project's development. However, since 2017, he has been an integral part of the Stoneflower3d journey, offering invaluable support and expertise whenever possible, showcasing his unwavering dedication to its success. Stanislav has consistently volunteered his time and expertise, providing unsalaried support to the project, further demonstrating his commitment to its growth and vision.
