SolarSinter Project: Solar Powered Glass Cutter

June 28, 2011

In a world increasingly concerned with questions of energy production and raw material shortages, this project explores the potential of desert manufacturing, where energy and material occur in abundance.

In this project sunlight and sand are used as raw energy and material to produce glass objects using a 3D printing process, that combines natural energy and material with high-tech production technology.

The Solar Sinter aims to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and triggers dreams of the full utilisation of the production potential of the world’s most efficient energy resource the sun. Whilst not providing definitive answers, this experiment aims to provide a point of departure for fresh thinking.
