Who wouldn’t love to decorate their Minecraft house with those transparent, good-looking glass blocks? If you are also looking forward to including glass in your next Minecraft world and don’t know how to smelt it, you will find this guide helpful. Different from many other materials, you cannot use a crafting table to make glass. Instead, you will be using a furnace to smelt glass. Just like in real life, you have to smelt it using a furnace in order to produce glass.
Materials required to make Glass in Minecraft
- 1x Sand
- 1x Red Sand
You can use either Sand or Red sand to smelt glass. You do not need both of them.
Steps to make Glass in Minecraft
We are assuming that you have already made a furnace and knows how to use it.
- Stand in front of the furnace and right-click on it. It will open the smelting screen.
- On the bottom box, place some kind of fuel such as Charcoal, Wooden slabs, etc.
- On the top box, place sand. You will see a cooking animation.
- After the cooking is complete, you can drag and drop the glass into your inventory.
/give Command for Glass in Minecraft
You can generate glass using the /give command. You do not have to walk around collecting sand and charcoal.
If you are using the Minecraft Java Edition versions 1.13 – 1.17, the command to get glass is:
/give @p glass 1
In other Java Edition versions of the Minecraft and all other Editions, the command for glass is:
/give @p glass 1 0
