The PERFECT-3D printers are sized to produce a single-piece of approximately 14″ cube. However, many larger parts can be assembled from smaller printed components, thus allowing for sizes up to a 48″ cube.
Since ceramic parts must undergo post-processing after printing, which includes sintering of the ceramic powders, it takes at least one week to get a custom ceramic component.
PERFECT-3D uses a proprietary mixture of silica, alumina, and zirconia.
PERFECT-3D uses vat photopolymerization, which is based on digital light processing technology.
PERFECT-3D is presenting a technical paper on the use of 3D-printed ceramic filters. In addition, P3D has a booth at…Read More
5 Secrets of Ceramic Additive Manufacturing
Abstract: Most people are probably not aware that Additive Manufacturing (AM) was invented more than 30 years ago. Even with that length of time, AM remains a technology that is just now gaining acceptance worldwide in the aerospace, automotive, and medical industries. One area where AM is still in relative infancy is making ceramic components. One of the primary challenges with Stereolithography-based ceramic AM is the fact that the material is actually a slurry that consists of ceramic powder suspended in a photo-reactive resin. This slurry adds complexity to the AM process because the viscosity and suspension of particles are additional variables that have to be managed (click image on the right to download white paper).
