What is ceramic 3D printing?

Ceramic 3D printing is the processes of depositing ceramic material layer by layer to form a geometry without the use of tooling. Previously, methods such as Ceramic Injection Moulding, Machining and Slip Casting were used to manufacture parts, with each process having their advantages and disadvantages.

In recent years the development of 3D printing has enabled materials such as Porcelain, Alumina and Zirconia to be used in the printing process. More challenging industrial materials such as Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) Aluminum Nitride (AlNi) and Silicore have been incorporated into the process too, with further developments in multi material applications; where two or more materials are deposited together, for example in the development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells.
