MIT researchers develop glass 3D printing method

According to reports, scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have come up with a process for 3D printing of objects created from transparent glass.

The method makes use of a cartridge, in which glass is heated up to a particular temperature.After that, the molten glass is funneled from the cartridge with help of an alumina-zircon-silica nozzle and then it is layered onto a platform to cool it down for building up glass objects.Read more: uncovermichigan.com/content/25281-mit-researchers-develop-glass-3d-printing-methodAccording to reports, scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have come up with a process for 3D printing of objects created from transparent glass.  The method makes use of a cartridge, in which glass is heated up to a particular temperature.
