{Pilchuck Glass School}

In Session 3 of the 2015 summer program at Pilchuck Glass School, a new class on Digital Fabrication was offered. †The instruction team consisted of Fred Metz, †Mark Ganter, †Josh Kopel, †Matt Sorensen,† Tim Belliveau, and† Julia Chamberlain. † The class consisted of hands-on exposure to the latest 3D CAD and 3D printing software as well as both plastic material extrusion (filament) and binder jetting (powder) 3D printing systems. † †Our students were brave and fierce in their desire to absorb new techniques and technology.

The class designed and 3D printed their hearts out for the fabrication of press molds for sand casting glass, and lost-PLA investment molds for metal and glass.

The instruction team also brought a 3D binder jetting printer (powder printer) to Pilchuck to directly 3D print molds and glass.

One of the very last events of the class, direct 3D printing of boro-silicate glass (compliments of David Winship). † David brought along some samples of recycled boro-glass and his ball mills for the production of glass powder. †He screened the powder for printing and we 3D printed it.

This is a first in the 3D printing community (as far as I know). † This was the very first 3D printing of boro-silicate glass using 3D binder jetting. † It was a great success.

Overall, the class was a smashing success. † We came. † We designed in 3D CAD. † We 3D printed. † We made glass and metal artifacts. †We celebrated our success. †We had a blast.
