RE: [rp-ml] Laser sintering of ceramics

There are many ways to build ceramic components using RP, including FDM,
SLS, SLA, 3DP and LOM (amongst others). At this point in time no one, to
the best of my knowledge, offers a commercial machine to do this. However,
a number of us have run ceramics in our RP machines as part of R&D programs.

If anyone is currently selling ceramic parts commercially from their RP
machines, I would be interested to know that. If you have some
developmental needs and funding available, I have all of the facilities
necessary to make ceramic parts using SLS and you can feel free to contact

Good luck.

Hello RP lovers,

I would like to build a ceramic component. Is there any RP machine that can
operate with ceramic powders?
