3D Printable Ceramics 

Posted by Verity Lewis | 1 comment

The University of the West of England, Bristol (UWE) and Viridis3D llc (Viridis) are pleased to announce that they have entered in to a licence agreement granting Viridis the exclusive rights to market ViriClay, a 3D printable ceramic material developed by Professor Stephen Hoskins and Mr Dave Huson of UWE’s Centre for Fine Print Research.


Professor Stephen Hoskins, who spearheaded the research, said: “We have proved a conceptually new approach to 3D print in ceramics. This development means that for the first time it will be possible to print rapid prototypes in ceramic. Prior to this ceramic prototypes were cast in plastic or plaster so it was not possible to fire a prototype and test the glazes.”
