Solar-powered 3-D printer prints glass from sand 

In a world increasingly concerned with questions of energy production and raw material shortages, this project by Markus Kaiser explores the potential of desert manufacturing, where energy and material occur in abundance. In this experiment sunlight and sand are used as raw energy and material to produce glass objects using a 3D printing process, that combines natural energy and material with high-tech production technology.
