Models made out of Ceramics are constructed from alumina silica ceramic powder and sealed with porcelain and silica. The glaze that is applied after printing is a lead free, non-toxic gloss. The material is heat resistant (up to 600°C), recyclable, and currently the only food safe 3D printing material. All of this makes it the perfect material for home decor stuff and table ware, especially when food and beverages get involved.

Pricing Info

Pricing for ceramics, which is 0.18 USD/cm², is based on the surface area of your model, not on the volume of material used.

Typical Use

Ceramics can be used for table ware (cups, bowls, plates, egg cups and coasters), candle holders, tiles, vases, art, and a whole lot more.

Technology

CeramicJet printing

CeramicJet printing is used to build your design in Ceramics. The printer builds up the model from bottom to top, layer by layer. A roller puts a thin layer of ceramic powder on a platform and a print head places organic binder at specific locations, printing a thin layer of your model. The platform lowers and the roller spreads another layer of powder. This process is then repeated until your model is completed.

The powder bed containing the printed model is removed from the 3D printer and placed in a drying oven. Drying increases the strength of the model though it’s still fragile at this point. After drying the model is extracted from the powder bed and excess powder is removed. The part is then fired in an oven to gain strength.

After the first firing a pre-glaze coating is applied. The coating is dried and then fired for a second time. Next the objects are glazed and fired for the final time. Now the shiny smooth glaze coating is evident.

Additional Information

  • Ceramics can resist temperatures of up to 600° Celsius/1112° Fahrenheit.
  • For models with a clear bottom (e.g. a cup), the bottom side may remain unglazed. This is due to the fact that your model needs to stand up when putting the glazed piece in the oven.
  • A model without a clear bottom will be put on a setter. The part where your model touches the setter will not be glazed.
  • Moving parts (e.g. chains) are not possible.
  • Please check our design guide for the design rules
