Design and Printing of 3D Ceramics: Hands-on Workshop

Category: Makerspace

Tags: None

Special workshop taught by Taekyeom Lee, Assistant Professor of Graphic Design, Appalachian State University

Professor Lee will also give a talk on 3D Printing Ceramics the evening of March 30th.

3D printing has broadened creative possibilities for artists and designers and perception of three-dimensional experience. Especially, 3D printing has become more refined, common, and accessible, as well as cheaper – these new technologies have provided new tools for pushing boundaries of the medium both in terms of concept and materiality.

3D printed ceramics is a relatively uncommon material in the industry, compared to plastics and metals, but the medium is beginning to develop, despite a lot of inherent difficulties. Since ceramic 3D printer was not affordable and accessible, I decided to build my own toolkits; a self-build desktop 3D printer based on RepRap and my own paste extruders. Through this workshop, I will provide a demo and share the printing process.

The workshop is structured to foster an eye opening experience and a personal approach to 3D printing ceramic objects. Topics introduced in the workshop include 3D modeling, 3D scanning, ceramic 3D printing and etc., and the workshop will be cover these topics:
  • Working with material (clay)
  • 3D modeling and/or 3D scanning
  • Prep for clay 3D printing
  • Basic knowledge about 3D printing
  • 3D printing clay
CAD skills preferred but not required.
