Solar Sinter proyect

Hola, os presento el proyecto de Markus Kayser, solar Sinter, en el que realiza impresiones 3d en cristal mediante el proceso de fundir arena con rayos de sol y lentes.
Cuando lo he visto he dicho:  Este chico va a hacer escuela.

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 experiment 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.

Solar-sintering aims to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and trigger 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.
