This article presents a detailed account of the processes involved in vat-photopolymerization-based fabrication of ceramics, namely bioceramics, structural ceramics, piezoelectric ceramics, optical ceramics, and polymer-derived ceramics. Information and methods of material preparation, curing characteristics, green-part fabrication, property identification, process design and planning, and quality control and optimization are introduced. The article also provides information on postprocessing techniques, namely debinding and sintering, as well as on the phenomenon of shrinkage and compensation.
