Abstract
Advanced ceramic materials with complex design have become inseparable from the current engineering applications. Due to the limitation of traditional ceramic processing, ceramic additive manufacturing (AM) which allows high degree of fabrication freedom has gained significant research interest. Among these AM techniques, low-cost robocasting technique is often considered to fabricate complex ceramic components. In this work, aqueous ceramic suspension comprising of commercial nano-sized yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) powder has been developed for robocasting purpose.
