3-D printing glass objects

Scientists in Germany have 3D printed very intricate tiny objects using glass. And of course, one of these objects is a pretzel. In the future, the technique could be used to 3D print more useful things, like complex lenses, filters, and even ornaments that generally need highly skilled artisans to make. The researchers used a type of “liquid glass” to make complex shapes that are smooth, transparent, and have a very high resolution, according to a study published today in Nature. More importantly, the glass objects were created using standard and commonly used 3D printers. The technique, however, also requires the use of a high-temperature oven you’re not likely to have in your apartment for baking a pie. Regardless, the study opens up... Continue reading…
