The 3D printing of glass takes a step forward
The 3D-printing of glass objects has been achieved before – we've seen it done by extruding molten glass, and even via a modern take on an ancient Egyptian technique. A new process developed at Germany's Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, however, is claimed to produce complex glass items of a higher quality than has ever previously been possible...
