Who we are

More than 15 years experience in 3D printing dedicated to ceramics!

Unique scientific expertise:

  • SLA 3D printing technologies (laser stereolithography),
  • process manufacture of ceramic parts,
  • ceramic materials (Zirconia, PAH, Alumina …).

A team of 20 highly qualified people (doctors, engineers, technicians …).

Created in 2001, 3DCERAM is a company based in Limoges and managed by Christophe Chaput and Richard Gaignon since 2009.

The company has been producing ceramic parts by additive manufacturing since 2005 thanks to a 3D printer that it has developed for its own needs: the CERAMAKER printer. In 2015, 3DCERAM has decided to market 3D printing lines based on the CERAMAKER printer and associated services.

Based on this unique technology, 3DCERAM, together with its team of experienced technical ceramic experts, has developed a complete range of products to support its customers on technologically challenging projects: help to choose the type of ceramics, support to draw up specifications, R & D, development of a 3D part up to its industrialization, on-demand production or series-production, sale of CERAMAKER printers and associated consumables.

3DCERAM specializes in three areas:

  • Industry (Aerospace, Defense, Aeronautics, Automotive),
  • The biomedical (eye implants, cranial …),
  • Luxury (jewelery, watchmaking).

Safran, Air Liquide, Zeiss, Thales, Swatch Group, Apple, Limoges University Hospital … are some of the customers who trust us.
