3D printing by stereolithography with ceramic additives

The 3D printing market has experienced astonishing expansion in the last years, and is still expected to present a compound annual growth rate of 28.5% until 2022. This will translate in the blossoming of new products, companies and jobs. In this context, the development of new materials for this sector is especially relevant. Stereolithography (FDM) is one of the most widespread technique for 3D printing, since the cost of the equipment allows hobbyists to enjoy the benefits of 3D printing.
In this project you will be requested to test the effect of ceramic additives on photopolymer materials for 3D printing. First you will be trained in the preparation of materials and handling. Then, you will have to test the performance of the different materials. Interest in 3D printing and keenness to use machinery are indispensable for this project, while knowledge of chemistry is not required.
