SIS-Ceramics is a layer based SFF approach used for 3D printing ceramics. During the printing process of SIS-Ceramics, a solid powder S is used to define the boundaries of the part by being deposited into the paved building material. The complete printing of powder S is de facto a coating of the part which is also loose powder before sintering. During the sintering process, the powder S keeps loose due to its higher sintering temperature while the building material turns into a solid piece. The solid powder S serves as the sacrificial mold to separate the part from the surrounding when sintering is complete. The coating is broken by simply brushing away the powder S and the final part is obtained.
