manufacturing Ceramics

anyone know what type of data is required for the manufacturing of ceramics such as mugs, serving dishes, other tableware?

i’m just learning about ceramic technology at the moment.

Midwestsky, when you say data do you mean a cad file or a dimensioned drawing because that’s all you will need.
This is broad topic but basically you select a material; such as earthenware, stoneware, porcelain etc. You select a firing ranges for the clay and glaze, making sure the clay and glaze fit well(thermal expansion). You calculate for shrinkage throughout the production process and add the loss to your tooling model. You use a service like http://www.mehlmandesign.com to make your tooling models or mold masters and you send them out to the factory. In short that’s it.
Good Luck!

yeah Terracotta, thats it. That’s what I was looking for. Thank you!
