Dear All,

I'm a long time RP/RM user and researcher. Over the past several
years we've spent some time working on 3D printing of ceramics.
It been interesting...

Check out our University press release:

http://uwnews.org/uweek/article.aspx?id=48401

OR Ceramics Monthly Article:

http://www.ceramicartsdaily.org/magazines/Ceramics%20Monthly /2009febprintedpotfeature.aspx

You will notice that I have included the formulas for
powder and binder.

Cheers....Mark

Ganter,

This is wonderful! I started with, and still do ceramic art. I am very interested in where clay and digital processes collide synergetically. My ceramic gnomes were made with press molds created here with Shapeways.

Did you use a z-corp printer for this? Could you provide a link to the printer model/models that you think are most useful for this process?

We've run these materials on both 400 class Z machines and 300 class machines. There is an issue with our binder on the 300 class machines (as it is a little too thin). For now, you'll need to
use the standard company binder on the 300 class machines. T The powders work great.

Have you ever heard of Bluestone (3D Systems) or Nanotool (DSM Somos) ?

These are stereolithography resins which have a ceramic filler in them.

The result is a very stiff, but sometimes brittle part (depending on wall thickness).

Also with very good heat resistance properties (up to 250 degrees C I believe)

Very good for aerodynamics and wind tunnel testing.
