Article Preview

In this paper a novel and versatile 3D print-patterning technique coupling electrohydrodyanmics and a specially designed and constructed plotting device is elucidated. This unit is capable of free-forming advanced ceramics and we demonstrate this by using it to print-pattern a 5mm × 5mm × 1mm walled zirconia structure layer by layer. The wall thickness achieved is ~150$m, almost half that of similar structures prepared using ink-jet printing. The as-printed structure was studied by scanning electron microscopy and some of its typical features are discussed and related to the forming process.
