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.
