In the planned R&D project, point-shaped glass connecting elements are to be developed for use in various applications (e.g. facades; interior fittings, such as stairs) in the building industry. The point-shaped glass connecting elements are to be produced using a 3D printing process. For this purpose, an economical glass printing process must be developed. The glass printing process or the glass printing system will be developed in such a way that different glass base materials with different material thicknesses can be processed. This means that joints with different properties can be produced for different applications.
