Additive Manufacturing of Optically Transparent Glass Mediated Matter Group in collaboration with…
Coil pot glass 3D printer that uses a glass printing process called G3DP which apparently gives control over geometry and optical qualities such light transmission, reflection and refraction to affect the transparency and colour variation.
The best thing about this is that the glass is over 1000°C and whole thing glows.

Incredible 10μm resolution 3D scanning of paintings. Skip to 3:20 to see the incredible sculptural qualities of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Technique uses two 40 megapixel DSLRs and a fringe projector (forming a structured-light 3D scanner) to capture the topological map at a resolution of 50μm in the plane of the image and a depth of 9.2μm. Not clear on how they were printed.
