Hi everybody.

I´m starting really challenging proyect with some glazed ceramic parts and I got some questions about the ceramics printing process and mechanical use of these parts.

Standard ceramic pottering need to design/make models almost 7% bigger due to the shrinking "cooking" process.

How about ceramic printing?

Other question is about thermal resistance of the glazed ceramic parts.

Would any of these parts handle temperatures about 500ºC?

And last question is about mechanical use. I want to make a part that spins with tight tolerances touching a polished metal ring.

Hardness of the glazed surface?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
