Ceramic Morphologies: 3D Printing on Ceramic Tile

Harvard University researchers and students from the Material Processes and Systems (MaP+S) group once again delighted visitors to the Trans-Hitos exhibit at CEVISAMA (2017) with their new project entitled “Ceramic Morphologies.”

The new installation, supported by the Ceramic Technology Institute (Institution de Tecnología Cerámica, ITC) in Castellón, Spain, explored the design opportunities of a novel ceramic 3D printing strategy. The project is a prototype for the additive manufacturing of ceramic building components in an industrial scale. 


The pavilion showcased the expressive potential of ceramic 3D printing, and tested the adaptation of principles of thermodynamic heat transfer to 3D printed geometry.
