Researchers 3D Print in Glass: Page 2 of 2

Move over plastic and metal—thanks to researchers in Germany, there’s a new material that can now used in a 3D printing process: glass.

3D-formed glass also can be used for data processing applications in next-generation computer technology to make small, complex structures out of a large number of very small optical components of different orientations, he added. Additionally, the material can be used in small analytical systems comprised of miniature glass tubes for biological and medical applications.
