Earthly Mission

Solar Powered 3D Printer


Markus Kaiser’s  solar sintering 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, combining natural energy and material with high-tech production technology.


This raises a few questions about the future of manufacturing and the use of solar energy, doesn’t it? Check out the video to find out more:
