Claiming that they have built the largest ceramic 3D printer ever made, Israeli design and research studio ‘Studio Under‘ have certainly set themselves up to a high standard. Founded by industrial designers Eran Gal-Or, Liat Akerman and Omer Merzel, the studio of recent Holon Institute of Technology grads focus on designing and fabricating 3D printed ceramic products and selling them world-wide. Their recently-unveiled ceramic 3D printed innovation (along with designer Roy Yahalomi) is perhaps their most exciting yet: a printing process that enables full multi-color support for all your ceramic printing needs.

Colored Ceramic 3D Printing

“We love ‘playing’ with new technology and invent machines, with them we make ceramic products, in our small ‘3d factory’.”

The diamond-shaped light fixture is the first for Studio Under and Roy Yahalomi in what will hopefully be a new trend in otherwise color-less 3D prints…both ceramic and other materials. While there are certainly companies focusing on the development of 3D printers that enable multiple-color prints that are affordable at the consumer level, we are still yet to see something that is both accessible and realistic…if at all real.
