Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to revolutionise engineering because of its advantages in the product development phase. The revolution consists in the fact that components can be designed for their function and no longer for their manufacturability. This is already a reality for plastic and metallic components where new disruptive designs have been already produced at competitive costs. Following the AM hype, the ceramic industry is now thinking to adopt this technique for industrial components. Stereolithography (SLA) is nowadays used to fabricate complex structures in all the material classes. Two components designed for their function and produced by SLA are here presented along with their unique features. These components were developed for industrial applications in the automotive industry as well as for heat management (production, transfer and storage).
