3D Printing of Smart Ceramic

by Nathan Gardner
The Direct Ink Writing of smart material Barium Titanate gives rise broad applications in medical, robotic, and electronic fields.  By modifying current 3D printer technology to fit the needs of the smart ceramic, such as redesigning the print head and reconfiguring the feeder assembly, barium Titanate can be used as the ink for Direct Ink Writing. This technique will be generalizable for other ceramics as well.
