tubing expanding instead of extruding, only happens with more viscous materials.
It would cause lots of problems extruding clay especially over control of the print as well as bursting tubes and poping the tube off the luer lock on the syringe.
haven't tested it yet but i'm pretty sure it will do the trick, but now the problem might be in bracing the plunger part of the syringe so it doesn't bend/twist under that amount of force. was planning to make and print re enforcement splints for it.
but other hobbies have taken priority for now.
