[rp-ml] Ceramic structures using RP

Good morning,


I have a question. I just subscribed to this mail list so please be gentle!
I've been working on a comparative analysis of the RP processes (hasn't
everyone!?!) and I'm trying to determine which processes can provide a part
using ceramic materials. Can someone please give me a list of processes
that can be used with ceramic materials? I'd like to have some samples made
to test the typical characteristics such as dimensional accuracy, surface
finish, strength, etc. I will be testing all types of materials such as the
plastics, metals, ceramics, and so on. I just want to make sure I have
captured all the processes that can do ceramics.


Also, on a side note, I've been trying to get an .stl file from the
benchmark part used in the rapid prototype journal entry titled
"Benchmarking for comparative evaluation of RP systems and processes" by M.
Mahesh, Y.S. Wong, J.Y.H. Fuh, and H.T. Loh, found in Volume 10 Number 2
dated 2004, pp. 123-135. Does anyone have a copy of this model file they
can send to me? I'd appreciate any help you can provide.


I only have a cursory knowledge of RP processes but I'm trying to ramp up
fast. I'd appreciate any information that can be provided to me.


Thank you,


Jim Good
