Solar Sinter Project By Markus Kayser It Uses Sunlight And Sand To 3D Print Glass Objects


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.//MarkusKayserDesign

Solar-sintering aims to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and trigger dreams of the full utilisation of the production potential of the worlds most efficient energy resource – the sun.


Whilst not providing definitive answers this experiment aims to provide a point of departure for fresh thinking. The solar sintering created by Markus uses as raw material the desert sand and as heating source the sun, powered by a game on lenses.
