Abstract
Additive manufacturing is seen by many as the holy grail of manufacturing, the ability to produce parts nearly autonomously. Adding material rather than removing it would eliminate the need for expensive resources and machining. The recent expiration of key 3D printing patents has led to many advances in the field and has dramatically lowered the prices of 3D printers, making them accessible to the average individual. The one area where additive manufacturing is still in its infancy is in ceramics. Ceramic materials have advantages over polymers and metals such as corrosion resistance, insulating behavior, high stiffness and high temperature stability that make ...
