‘OPTICS JOHN’- VOLUME 2: THE ADVANTAGES OF 3D PRINTED LED OPTICS
John is an Optics Designer working at an R&D department in the Lighting Industry. John has a problem: he has created a new lens design and needs to produce a small badge of prototypes in order to convince his client to choose his product. If choosen, he will also need a small series of about 100 pieces produced for the actual project itself.
John has a limited budget and can affort large upfront investments in tools or molds, and he can’t let wait his client wait for weeks on him when his components are produced either, but he needs affordable and functional prototypes fast. John gets worried, even frustrated, and searches the internet for a better solution… and finds one! LUXeXceL offers 3D printed optics and it looks likes this is just what John needs!

Let’s have a look to what this means for John! No more costs for molds and tools, large upfront investments are no longer necessary! With 3D printing, optics can be sent to you in days, instead of weeks, or even months! Because you can order on demand, and there are no minimum order quantities, obsolete inventory is now a thing of the past. Inventory can now be digitally stored on your computer, saving both money and the environment.
3D Printing Enables Lighting Customization
3D printing also allow for a lot of new and differently shaped optics to be produced than what’s to be used possible. And the best part: light distribution can now be finally customized. It can be customized per project, per application, or even per single product. John knows enough: he uploads his CAD file to the LUXeXceL website, receives his quote, and orders his optics, which is easy and fast.
Just a few days later he already receives them by mail. His client is thrilled by the quality of the products, his boss is happy because John has kept his costs to a minimum, and optical designer John is proud to finally deliver the quality optics he wanted. Even for custom projects!
