Attempts to improve the performance of ceramic parts have recently led to advances in their design and in the processes used to tailor these parts. Thus, Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, initially developed in the polymers and metals industries, have become of increasing interest for shaping ceramic parts. Among AM techniques, photopolymerization (referred to as stereolithography (SLA) and micro-stereolithography) makes it possible to reach high accuracy that matches the design… Expand
