Glass

ExOne now offers digital part materialization in 100% recycled (and recycleable) soda-lime glass. The fine glass powder is glued together, layer by layer with a binder and sintered in a kiln. The material is porous, opaque and fragile and feels coarse to the touch. The glass material systems are best used for art sculptures and other decorative objects.
