Abstract

In recent years, various additive manufacturing (AM) technologies that are capable of processing ceramic materials have been demonstrated. On one hand, many of the AM ceramic technologies have demonstrated geometry freedom capability and broad range of material flexibility. In some of the ceramic AM processes the part accuracies have also been favorably demonstrated. On the other hand, when reviewing the requirements of ceramic structures from applications perspective, there still appears to exist a misalignment between the demonstrated capability of ceramic AM and the required performance. The lack of critical microstructural characteristic and performance evaluation results are likely setting significant barriers for the broader adoption of ceramic AM, which should be addressed via close collaborations between academia and industries.
