Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED

QUESTIONS

1. What is the maximum part size that can be produced?

We can readily produce parts within the dimensions – 100x200x90mm. For parts larger than the listed dimensions, please contact us at for more information.

2. What is the minimum feature size that can be produced?

Generally, features that are larger than 0.5mm can be produced regardless of the hole diameter, pillar diameter, wall thickness and so on.


However, this value may vary depending on the geometry of the part. For features that are smaller than 0.5mm, please contact us at for more information.

3. What is the maximum wall thickness that can be produced?

Generally, the maximum wall thickness is 5mm for Zirconia and 7mm for Alumina. If you require your part to have a larger wall thickness, please contact us at for more information.

4. Why do ceramic parts produced by Additive Manufacturing (AM) have the same mechanical properties as parts produced traditionally like Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM)?

Ceramic AM is subjected to the same starting powders and heat treatment process as CIM, which are key factors that determine the final properties of ceramics.

5. What are the materials that I can print my part in?

We offer high-performance materials such as Alumina, Zirconia, Silicon Nitride, and more.

3. What is the maximum wall thickness that can be produced?

Generally, the maximum wall thickness is 4mm for Zirconia and 6mm for Alumina. If you require your part to have a larger wall thickness, please contact us for more information so that we can better advise you.

6. What is the surface finish of the ceramic parts?

For fully sintered parts without post-processing, it is about Ra 1-2μm. A better surface finish can be achieved by grinding and polishing.

7. How long does it take to receive a quote?

We will evaluate the design, and get back to you within 1 – 3 working days.

8. What is the cost of printing with ceramics?

The cost largely depends on how much material is used, how large the design is, and the time it takes to produce the design. Contact us to get a quote for your design.


For example, for the printing of a 12mm cube part regardless of complexity, the building platform can yield around 180 – 200 pieces per print, and this will cost $120 USD per cube.

9. What are your delivery charges?

We provide free standard shipping within Singapore for small parts < 2kg. For large parts and overseas countries, we will ship via DHL and inform you of the costs before shipping.

10. How long does delivery take?

Excluding the shipment time, it usually takes 10 to 14 working days to produce fully sintered parts after the order is placed. For parts that have complex designs or if ordering in large quantities, the delivery time will take longer.
