3D Printed Ceramic Design

By on February 7th, 2012 in Design


Artist Jonathan Keep provided an update on his experiments using ceramic 3D printing to create very unusual works. Using a modified RapMan personal 3D printer that has its usual plastic extruders replaced with syringes, Keep can successfully 3D print ceramic models. The syringes contain a fixed-capacity cartridge full of ceramic material, meaning Keep’s prints have to stay within material volume limits. 
Keep has produced some truly beautiful designs by using algorithmic approaches. Software libraries provide mathematical components that Keep combines and tunes into designs suitable for ceramic 3D printing. You can check out all his ceramic works here.
