Material Extrusion-Based Additive Manufacturing for Ceramics Using Thermoplastic Feedstocks

Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been accepted by industry for shaping ceramics with complex structures
or structures where a significant amount of material has to be removed by commercial subtraction
manufacturing processes. Nowadays, AM can also be used for the fabrication of parts with multi ceramic
materials. Material Extrusion-Based AM (MEX-AM) represents a group of shaping methods where a material
is pushed through a nozzle by pressure due to its plasticity. In this article, the authors will focus on
ceramic shaping using the plasticity of thermoplastic binders and will explain the differences of existing
MEX-AM methods.
