3D printer converts the desert sand into glass only with the sun!
posted June 27 2011 19:13.50 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Markus Kayser built this incredible machine! It is a fully functional solar-powered 3D printer and has a solar tracker and a large fresnel lens. The computer tracks the sun and moves the lens accordingly. The sun rays are focused on the focal point, and the temperature melts the desert sand and converts it into glass! Layer by layer, 3D objects are made. Isn't this awesome? Watch the video and you will be amazed!
