Solid freeform fabrication of thin-walled ceramic structures using an electrohydrodynamic jet.

1727 - 1729.
A printing device, which operates on an electrohydrodynamic principle, was used to deposit 100 layers of a 10 vol% zirconia suspension. Thus, a wall similar to 100 mu m in thickness was freeformed. The wall thickness achieved in this work is almost 30% less than that of similar structures built by ink-jet printing and therefore we demonstrate a novel print deposition based solid freeform fabrication method, which can be developed further for preparing fine ceramic structures.
