Based on its unique properties in terms of durability, transparency and strength, glass is an unparalleled material playing a key role in construction and the building industry. Recent developments have shown that additive manufacturing (AM) with glass can be achieved with a variety of printing techniques. Since there is a growing tendency of applying technological innovations in building construction, this paper presents and summarizes the potential applications and the challenges of AM with glass in the field of architectural engineering. The possibilities of reinforcing and local stiffening are addressed, as well as the vision to develop glass connections, directly printed on a glass pane.
