Ceramic 3D printing has always been a popular application of additive manufacturing, yet still on the relative margins when compared to thermoplastics or metals. Naturally, metals and plastics are quite prominent in our daily lives, so it’s no wonder they take up more of the additive manufacturing world as well.
Ceramics, while a large part of much of our day-to-day appliances, are less often additively manufactured. Still, ceramic 3D printing technologies are increasing in popularity and can be quite impressive, as recent research projects have proven. Due to some of the unique properties that ceramic materials, like clays or silicon compounds, provide, 3D printing technological components can be quite fruitful. Such technologies can have important medical applications, electrical properties or abilities to strengthen certain types of waveforms, for example.
In this article, we’ll look at four incredible examples of such applications from across different industries. 3D Printed Electro-Ceramic Energy […]
