The 1st 3D printing personal points with a titanic frame
In cooperation with Melotte, the innovative Belgian company specializing on 3D to the press, the known Belgian designer and оптик Patrick Hoet and his assistants developed the 1st 3D printing personal points with a titanic frame.
Хоэт and Melotte offer two options. The points, which separate elements can be picked up in coordination with wishes, deliver in a week after the order. Buyers also are given opportunity to choose completely exclusive model. By means of technologies 3D of the press, 3D scanning and the software for 3D modeling, Melotte is capable to provide to clients points which are written in coordination with specific individual parameters of the person. It is possible to put a name of their carrier on all points.
At present 3D printing spectacle frames are quite often produced from plastic. For example, the Mykita company located in Berlin uses technology of a selective laser texture for production of a strip of points under Mylon title. The material used for production of these frames, is based on polyamide. One more company of points located in San – Frantsisko, is called as Protos. It used 3D the press and technology of recognition of the person when developing plastic spectacle frames. Their material, also one of types of polyamide, is more suitable for SLS-printerov.
According to Mario Fleurink, the director general of CEO, them 3D printing titanic frames are unique, unique. the 1st model 3D of printing titanic points is offered in 7 various compositions of specific lenses in coordination with the sizes of a nose of the buyer. At present this highly technological 3D can be ordered printing points in one of 14 Flemish shops of optics, also in 15 shops abroad.
In coming buyers will pass 3D scanning for receiving honey of data and features which will be used for creation of the unique frame which is completely corresponding to the client later. Fleurink and Hoet expect that 3D the press will overturn soon and will change the optics market.
