    ... this is a pretty "macro" glass printing methode ... some years ago I've made some tests with "additive wire fusing" with different materials like metal and glass for manufacturing micro-sensors.

    The finest metal wires I've melted/fused on metal surfaces were 10 microns platinum and 25 microns steel wires ... the finest glass wires I've found for free and tested with, were 30 microns ... but could have get even thinner, when ordered from the manufacturer.

    I'm actually starting a funded project for the same "additive wire fusing" meant for 3D-printing complex parts -- let's see, what will be possible with this next year

    Wonder how expensive it would be to have a few one-offs made?
