Our passion
Is 3d printing a way of life or simply the future?

When it comes to 3d printing of Clay, yes, for us it is more than just creating intricate or bold objects. Clay is available everywhere and can easily be re-used so there is no waste. And the print files can instantly be shared worldwide so we look forward to the day people from various countries will combine their ideas.

Education is key

About The founders of VormVrij.

The LUTUM® 3d clay printer was not conceived for commercial production. It was developed as a solution for us to print with clay. A clean and friendly material. We have no background in ceramics, nor did we know much about 3d printing. But through persistent research into the various challenges we encountered we were able to design a reliable and easy to use machine. After several requests we realized we would never have enough time to utilize the endless possibilities and decided to provide it to ceramists. As a result we now serve potters, universities and research centers around the world!
