Glass in Astroneer is a refined resource used to make other items. However, it can be challenging to farm this material if you don’t know where to look. So, keep reading as we guide you into collecting Glass in Astroneer.

Crafting Glass in Astroneer

Astroneer Glass Craft Like farming other items in Astroneer, such as Clay, players must go through a reasonably arduous (yet rewarding) endeavor before they can farm Glass. First, you must build a Small Printer using 1x Compound from your Backpack Printer. Then, place the Small Printer into your preferred location and supply power to it. Next, interact with the Small Printer and craft a Medium Printer using 2x Compound. Again, place the Medium Printer at your preferred location and power it up. This time, interact with the Medium Printer to craft the Smelting Furnace using 2x Resin and 1x Compound. Place the Smelting Furnace and connect it to a power source afterward. Now, it’s time to gather the base material for Glass in Astroneer – Quartz. Thankfully, you can find Quartz on all the planets in the game. To get this particular material, you must collect at least two full Soil Canisters and place them in a Soil Centrifuge. One operation using these two soil containers yields 4x Quartz. Alternatively, trade 1x Scrap for 2x Quartz at the Trade Platform. After gathering Quartz, place this item in the Smelting Furnace. Wait for the process to complete, and you should now have a steady supply of Glass. Tip: Follow along with our Astroneer Beginner’s Guide to reach a point where this process is a bit less difficult.
