Soft Polymer Shell Keeps 3D-Printed Ceramics From Cracking.

Ceramics made with 3D printers crack under stress like any plate or bowl. But covered in a soft polymer cured under ultraviolet light, the same materials stand a far better chance of keeping their structural integrity, much like a car windshield’s treated glass is less likely to shatter.
The research was published in Science Advances.
