Johnson Matthey and voxeljet Collaborate to Develop Ceramic Binder Jet 3D Printing

Johnson Matthey and voxeljet Collaborate to Develop Ceramic Binder Jet 3D Printing

Chemical company Johnson Matthey has been pursuing additive manufacturing for several years, like many other companies in the chemical industry. Unlike many of its peers, however, Johnson Matthey hasn’t been focusing on plastic 3D printing; it decided to go the ceramics route. Specifically, the company has been exploring binder jet ceramic 3D printing, opening an R&D lab […]

3DCeram Expands Ceramic 3D Printing Business with Investment from Sinto Group

Ceramics are a relatively new material in 3D printing, at least on a large scale. One company has been working with the material in 3D printing for over a decade, however, long before most people knew of it as a material that could be 3D printed. 3DCeram has been 3D printing ceramic parts since 2005, inventing […]

Vote for the Most Significant 3D Printed Thing in the World 2017

Soooo….a few weeks ago I released the definitive, totally unsurpassable Top 10 3D Printed Things. It turned out that sadly some mere mortals did in fact disagree with me. I’ve decided to do a rather more democratic approach. I’ve made a new list based on my initial suggestions, some more I came up with, coupled with […]

RIT Students Build and Program Their First Ceramics 3D Printer in Only Three Hours

I envy current college students, to be honest. When I was in college, 3D printing had existed for a couple of decades, but most people I knew hadn’t heard of it. I didn’t know what it was at the time, and I definitely didn’t know of any schools that had 3D printers; mine certainly didn’t. Now, […]

WASP to Attend Argillà 2016 with Demos of DeltaWASP 3MT & 4070 3D Printers

Here at 3DPrint.com, I think I speak for all of us when I say we perk up when WASP is making news. Part of it is probably due to the sheer size of their printing ambitions, but also due to the range of innovation in what are almost always very unique projects. As you have […]

With Hard Work, Incredible Patience and Wits, Professor Builds Ceramic 3D Printer from a Simple Delta Kit

Update 10/10/16: Taekyeom received some advice on his clay extruder and an engineer said, PVC pipe is not a safe material because PVC can crack, or even shatter. Cooper or stainless steel will be good material. DO NOT use PVC piping system for use in compressed air.   3D printed ceramics are a relatively less-talked-about […]

Ceramics are a particularly interesting material in 3D printing, I think. When one thinks of ceramics, one typically thinks of china, pottery, coffee mugs, etc. The material is used in a much wider range of applications than most people realize, though, and the Ceramaker 3D printer has been demonstrating the versatility of ceramics while satisfying […]

Christo Logan's 'two.parts': Illuminating Things with 3D Printed Ceramic Lights

Admiring 3D printed lamps is a guilty pleasure of mine (and of others on our staff). I am not sure what it is about them: perhaps their illuminating quality is enough. One recent series of 3D printed lamps really stands out due to their elusive qualities. They are hollow, and the LED lighting is embedded in the […]

New 3D Printing Technique Makes Complex Ceramics for Spaceships

When I was a kid, I would visit my great-grandmother’s apartment on Park Avenue in New York City. She had traveled the world and brought back vases, plates, and dolls from more places than I could name. While I was fascinated with these objects, I was also terrified of them because I knew they were […]

Good News!: 3D Printing Is Beginning to Really Influence the Ceramic Arts World, as Shapeways Has Seen

You may not realize it, but it’s highly likely that you are surrounded by ceramic materials right now. Everything from bricks, pipes, floors and roof tiles to your tableware can be made from ceramic material: and this extends way beyond the common associations we have with that high school pottery class you were forced to endure. Defined as […]
