Fully-customized, modular solar house is 3D printed prefab

Solar House 2.0, erected this year on Barcelona’s waterfront, uses time-tested passive solar techniques, but it takes a high-tech leap forward using digital …

3D Printing Could Turn Space-Based Solar Power into a Reality

3D Printing Could Turn Space-Based Solar Power into a Reality
Space-based solar power (SBSP) offers many advantages over Earth-based solar, yet the main obstacle in its development is the cost of sending up the solar panels into orbit. 3D printing may well be able to slash these installation costs and therefore …

Markus Kayser – Solar Sinter Project

All rights to www.markuskayser.com who unfortunately only uploaded the video to Vimeo, hence this upload, you are welcome. Making Something Out of Nothing Using Nothing (renewable energy) This just blew my mind away, I do not own the video.. All the links are below: 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 triggers 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. Solar Sinter project (solar sinter project) Link to producers: www.markuskayser.com
