Sorry for asking such a technical question, I searched the site and FAQ for the answer and found this to be a very cool site but I could not find the answer to my question. I

Thanks!

Thanks, I saw that materials page, however I still couldn't find the answer to my question. I am wondering specifically what kind of machine does the 3d printing for ceramics. Is it a polyjet machine? SLS? something else?
