G3DP

G3DP is the first additive manufacturing process to successfully 3D print optically transparent glass. By combining knowledge of glass processing with 3D-printing technology, the creators were able to pioneer an accessible extrusion-based method for creating glass shapes. It could present a new way of using glass in design and architecture, enabling the creation of glass shapes that twist and undulate in unconventional ways.

Creators: Shreya Dave, Giorgia Franchin, Peter Houk, Chikara Inamura, Markus Kayser, John Klein, Neri Oxman, Michael Stern
