Process is a modern take on an ancient glass making process 3D printing is an interesting technology which allows engineers and designers to get a 3D object from a digital design that can be viewed in the real world.
Artists also use 3D printing to make art that is designed digitally. A team of engineers and artists working at the University of Washington's Solheim Rapid Manufacturing Laboratory has developed a new method of using conventional 3D printers to create glass objects. A 3D printer typically uses a layer of powder that is activated by an ink jet printer that sprays a binding material at the exact location it is needed. The Free Universal Construction Kit.
