ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Reshaping and expanding the boundaries of what’s possible to achieve with ceramic products

The possibility to additively produce ceramic components brings new opportunities for the building industry to explore the possibilities of incorporating components with specific design requirements.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) allows direct and accurate construction of customised and multifunctional applicable building components with significant applications in architecture.

Recent experiments showed the application of ceramic materials as a contemporary solution for architectural production, enabling new uses and challenging functions, namely by discretising free-form geometries in components, integrating flexible interlocking connections and adding new performative and infra­structural features.
