3D glass printing

German researchers have found a way to print 3D objects of pure glass.
Researchers at the German Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have developed ´liquid glass´ which can be used as ink in a normal 3D printer.
The liquid glass consists of silica nano particles dissolved in prepolymeres. They effectively are mini glass particles in a solution. With this glass ink you can print an object which then has to be put in an oven to harden and remove excess material. The resulting object is made of pure see-through glass. It is not only beautiful, but also heat and weather resistant.
