Numerical Simulation of Ceramic 3D Printing

status: ongoing

Ceramic 3D printing is a rapidly developing area of additive manufacturing technologies. When a piece of ceramics is manufactured, it goes through a multi-stage technological process. The geometrical shape of the product needs to remain under control through all stages, as well as the mechanical properties. We focus on the stereolithographic technology, where ceramic particles are diluted into chemical monomers that convert into polymers under laser treatment. Three-dimensional solid parts are grown in a layer by layer fashion.
