Virtual Potters Wheel

As far as I can remember back, I don’t think we have ever covered the subject of pottery here at gadgetvenue. So, here we have perhaps the worlds first pottery gadget that uses 3D technology with an old art.

The device consists of a 3D scanner that tracks movement of your hands. The 3D scanner part is referred to as a Virtual wheel. This technology is combined with a 3D printer that converts ceramic powder in to a solid form and then cools it down.

So, you create your virtual potter subject and once done, you send it to print and it gets built for you as you designed it.

The results can be seen in the picture below (right side). Unfortunately we cannot track a video down just yet of how it works. If we do, we’ll post it here.
