Research

3D Printing Glass is a very powerful and flexible research tool.

We have collaborated and sold to various research groups in the space of optics, fluids, specialty glass material and composites and sensors.

Mechanical Glass Testing

In collaboration with the Glass Competence Center in Germany we are performing various mechanical testing of 3D printed pieces. This includes directly 3D printed pieces as well as 3D printing onto sheets of glass to augment properties of sheet glass. 

Glass Manipulation  

The 3D printer nozzle is able to extrude and inject glass into pieces that are temperature controlled inside the print chamber furnace. 

Though we can't share our projects completed here we can say that we are capable of extruding glass into other assemblies to create glass / metal bonds.
