Specsy Launches Custom 3D Printed Eyewear in US Market
Toronto-based eyewear company Specsy has announced the entry of their technology driven 3D printed custom eyewear line in the United States, at the Vision Expo East. Specsy creates custom frames that are designed in-store with augmented reality and 3D scanning and crafted through 3D printing.
Specsy provides optical professionals with a retail ready app to design custom glasses tailored to the patient’s aesthetic preferences and technical requirements. The Specsy retail app uses augmented reality, allowing patients to design frames on a live image of their face. By utilizing 3D facial scans and a digital design process, Specsy provides optical professionals the opportunity to offer a truly custom frame.
“After extensive research and development, we are thrilled to be introducing cutting edge innovation and technology to the optical field” said Milan Madhavji, Specsy’s Chief Technology Officer. “Specsy will change the way optical professionals approach frame fitting by removing any restrictions currently faced when working with a fixed inventory of frames.”
Based out of Ontario, Specsy utilizes an in-house multi-colour 3D printer to craft their frames. By taking advantage of the most cutting-edge technology available in 3D printing, Specsy frames achieve a durability level previously unattainable in 3D printing. With a plastic resin frame forming their core collection, Specsy has their eyes set on offering a custom metal frame in late 2018 and new innovative materials into the future.
