3D-printing with clay remains an experimental field, where Erno Langenberg feels right at home. Last October, he joined EKWC’s Sander Alblas to address a common problem in printing with normal clay pressed through a nozzle: you constantly need to change the cartridges. The solution? Use slip clay from a large container, add a substance to speed up coagulation – and start experimenting until you get it right. Erno also investigated ways to print with locally sourced clay that doesn’t have the consistent qualities of industrial clay bodies, by incorporating things like different shrinkage and deformation into the design of his building elements.
