Over the past few years, 3d printers are much concerned to the industry and the print process is not complicated. The operator can simply put 3D graphic digital files in the printer, the files will be cut into 2d cross-sectional diagram. Then, the printer will print out each cross-section diagram. Finally stick the top of the files together to form a solid 3d object. However, scientists have been unable to use the glass 3d printer. Because they have not found an effective way to ensure that the glass powder will absorb the adhesive. Fortunately, scientists at the University of Washington recently solve this problem by adjusting the mix of glass powder and binder ratio and heating temperature so that the glass objects in 3d printing become possible.

3d Glass Printing technology will be popular in the construction and artistic fields. In the construction sector, 3d printing technology can complete to print the model fast, in order to help architects decide which is the best design suited to a certain environment through rapidly testing different types of glass.

For an environmentalist, the glass can be printed in the old pattern, in order to achieve the recycling of glass. If the price is right, people will be able to produce their own glassware.
