3D Printing optical grade glass on a form2?


I read this article recently and was wondering if there was any thoughts from people here printing optical quality glass with custom resin mixes on a form2? maybe in open source mode perhaps?.


It probably would need a little final polishing perhaps for small lenses an things like that but seems pretty cool! just wondering if anyone’s tried it out and what the results were like…

You beat me to it - I was just coming here to post a request for FL to develop some resin like this!

Also, maybe they could develop resin like this but with alumina instead of silica particles? That would be the bomb.


yeah it would be interesting to see! :slight_smile:

also RE alumina / other metals Desktop metal seem to be getting a bit of news lately!
