Company awarded contract to create a special military-edition 3D printer capable of binder jet 3D printing more than 20 metal, ceramic and other powder materials into direct final products or tooling.
ExOne collaborates with Rapidia to incorporate its two-step 3D printing technology, which enables water-bound metal and ceramic parts to go directly from a printer into a furnace without a debinding step.
Made In Space, a subsidiary of Redwire, demonstrates first successful ceramic additive manufacturing in space.
Commercial in-space manufacturing device is designed to demonstrate proof-of-principle, single-piece ceramic turbine blisk manufacturing in microgravity for terrestrial use.
With Continuous Kinetic Mixing (CKM), 3DFortify sees expanded possibilities for printing polymer composites reinforced with fibers, ceramics and even metal flake in any concentration needed.
RAPID 2021: Nanoe Zetamix filaments are ceramic and metal filaments suitable with almost any standard FDM 3D printer that enable the design and prototyping of ceramic and metal parts with a low investment cost.
3D printed polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs) could find wider application through a process developed at the University of Texas at Dallas that extrudes preceramic material in a self-healing bath for support through printing and curing.

The proprietary process from XJet builds ceramic and metal parts using nanoparticle suspensions. Learn how NPJ works in this introductory article, part of our AM 101 series.
Formnext 2019: XJet’s line of nanoparticle jetting (NPJ) systems has been expanded with the Carmel 1400M for metals and Carmel 1400C for ceramics.
Formnext 2019: Lithoz has introduced the CeraFab System line designed for serial production of additively manufactured high-performance ceramics.
If SiC was easier and cheaper to apply, we would find many more uses for this hard, lightweight ceramic. Researchers have found a promising additive manufacturing approach, with crystal growth as the bonding mechanism.
XJet has unveiled alumina, a new ceramic material for NanoParticle Jetting (NJP) additive manufacturing.
The Rehovot, Israel, facility will support XJet's continued development of 3D printing materials and applications.
