While the development of rapid prototyping and digital fabrication technologies has transformed the production of models and prototypes in the industrial ceramics world, the use of these techniques in Art/Craft and Designer/Maker ceramics has been minimal, due to the cost and complexity of their implementation.

The Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England is conducting a research project into facilitating the use of digital fabrication techniques in the area of Art/Craft and Designer/Maker bespoke ceramics.

The aims of the project are to develop methodologies and practices to allow the Art/Craft and Designer/Maker ceramist to use and fully utilize these technologies.

The project is investigating three main areas:

The use of 3D printing technologies and CNC machining to translate a computer generated three-dimensional virtual model into a mould capable of producing a bespoke ceramic artifact.

To research the possibilities, and then develop the methodology of forming a bespoke ceramic artifact, directly by the use of 3D printing and other rapid prototyping technologies.

The use of laser scanning equipment, reverse engineering and digital fabrication techniques to facilitate the production of short runs of bespoke ceramic artifacts

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
