Researchers Use A Fiery Robot To 3D Print Glass

3D Printing Review

Researchers at Virginia Tech and the Rhode Island School of Design have created a system and lab for research into glass printing. Glass printing is, as you can imagine, a pretty heady process. It requires a lot of heat and a lot of luck and a general acceptance that your print will look awful simply because the glass will cool unevenly. Once you get over all of those things, however, you’re ready to rock and roll.
