Technical ceramic parts can be produced by curing ceramic-filled resins in the vat photopolymerization (stereolithography) process. Scaling up to larger ceramic product sizes and higher product
quality calls for the integration of more sensing, actuation and closed-loop control solutions while taking a systems engineering approach. This paper gives a comprehensive overview of methods
to deposit a layer of (ceramic-filled) resin, better known as recoating. The aim of this work is to perform a trade-off analysis of recoating methods to enable the selection of the method that best
meets the requirements for scaling up the printable object size in the ceramic vat photopolymerization process.
