Article
In this review, we summarize the research activities carried out by our research group at the University of Padova on the additive manufacturing of ceramics from liquid feedstocks. Particularly, we evaluate the use of preceramic polymers, geopolymers, and sol-gel solutions. We mainly focus on processing with liquid feedstocks because they have some...
Article
Aiming at optimizing the performance of porous ceramics through structural optimization, this work explored the properties variation achieved by designing different patterns in SiOC log-pile structures fabricated by direct ink writing. Specifically, we investigated the effect of filament diameter, spacing between filaments and angle of deflection b...
Article
Direct ink writing, a widely used additive manufacturing technique, has some disadvantages in fabricating suspended ceramic structures due to instabilities in the ink caused by surface tension and gravity forces, requiring a strict optimization of the rheology of the feedstock. To overcome this problem, freeform 3D printing was achieved in this wor...
Article
Printing curved lattice structures is a demanding task due to the current limitations in standard 3-axes printing technologies available in the market: a removable support structure often needs to be printed, and printing layer-by-layer to generate an inclined surface causes a significant stair-stepping effect, affecting the surface quality and lea...
Article
The electromagnetic waves (EMW) absorption properties of SiOC ceramics synthesized by polymer-derived method were investigated, and additive manufacturing was employed to obtain the integration of structure and functions. The presence of free carbon and β-SiC nanocrystallites increased the internal relaxation interfacial polarization, which improve...
Article
A facile and controllable method for the fabrication of SiOC ceramic components with hierarchical porosity is reported in this work, using additive manufacturing, sacrificial polymeric microbeads and a silicone resin. Particles-containing inks with suitable rheology enabled the fabrication by Direct Ink Writing of scaffolds with mm-scale macropores...
Article
Manufacturing of ceramic components with a geometrically complex 3D architecture and highly detailed features for use in a variety of practical applications is still a challenge. In our investigation, we adopted a synergistic strategy for fabricating SiOC ceramics with intricate 3D morphologies by additive manufacturing and origami technique or ass...
