This new 3D printer can manufacture more detailed ceramics

A startup out of New York called Kwambio has designed and developed new technology that 3D prints ceramics on-demand. The technology drastically trims down production time and allows for the mass customization of ceramics.

According to company CEO Vlad Usov, Ceramo One is not only faster—utilizing what’s called binder jetting 3D printing and ceramic powder, it can make a cup in just a few hours—but also enables the fabrication of shapes and products with more complicated internal structures, such as jewelry, custom technical parts, and even bone substitute implants for medical use.

”This can democratize entry into the ceramic design industry,” Usov says. “We wanted to share our technology, so other could do it without our help.”
