Advancing Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) Through 3D Printing Construction

A new process to create greenhouse glazing using 3D Printing is prototyped and tested. Using the principle of layer height fusion of plastic, new glazing will be created to provide shading and diffused light. The 3D Printed glazing will also be changed through the 3D Printer to change the amount of shading and diffused light, a benefit in hot climates.
