|3D ceramics printing and handcraft painting [message #60917] Sun, 27 January 2013 23:05 UTC
This week I found out about the possibility's of 3D-printing and the fact that this is possible in ceramics (and stainless steel) blows my mind! I can't stop thinking about it in combination with an artistic idea I have. So I'm trying to figure out the possibility's.
What I want (to try) is to combine (slow) handcraft with (fast) new digital possibility's. Just let me share the idea I have. And from there I hope to find solutions to turn this idea into a real object:
I want a very detailed object (3D-printed) in ceramics. Than I want to paint this object by hand with ceramics-paint. And than I want it to be glazed.
Now, for glazed 3D-printed ceramic objects I read on this website that within the 3D-design I have to get rid of sharp edges (give them a curve of 2 mm.), because otherwise the glaze will crack. So the first step for me will be to figure out how to make/get my 3D design and 'translate' it to the right shape for ceramicsprinting and glazing. Does anyone have any suggestions for this first step?
The next step will be to figure out what is possible to have the 3D printed ceramics object in front of me, so I can handcraft paint it. And than this handcraft painted object has to be glazed.
Does anyone have any suggestions on the possibility's for this idea?
