Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image of a 3D printed ceramic cubic lattice with hierarchical porosity. 3D printing of these ceramics with beam thickness of 250 microns is made possible via pyrolysis of structures made using an organic-inorganic photoresist. The brittle nature of these ceramics results in the snapping of whole beams at the nodes on impact.
