Inkjet 3D printing utilizes layer-by-layer droplet interaction and solidification to generate 3D components. In this work, using an open-source design, we created and modified the customized 3D inkjet printer to improve its printability. The preliminary results of the design and fabrication of the printer system are presented and experimentation with the inkjet printer head is performed. The printer’s performance was evaluated, and the printed components’ mechanical properties were measured. The project illustrates the effectiveness of this promising manufacturing technique for ceramics fabrications.
