In recent years, there have been rapid advances in our understanding of ceramic stereolithography (CSL) as a precise and high-resolution additive manufacturing (AM) technique to fabricate complex ceramic parts. This review highlights the theoretical background and engineering capabilities of CSL with an emphasis on photopolymerization of ceramic resins. We present certain constraints and characteristics designed to achieve optimal printability and photo-curability goals in ceramic resins and discuss in details about the parameters that can affect these properties. We then describe the current market status of CSL as well as its remaining challenges and promising future directions.
