“3D PRINTED LED OPTICS: STRAIGHT FROM THE PRINTER WITH ONLY ONE STEP FROM CAD-TO-OPTIC”

Luximprint, a Dutch company having it’s head quarters and Creative Factories in Wemeldinge, Netherlands, offers services for Optics Design and Additive Manufacturing of Inspirational, Functional and Decorative Optical Plastics. The process 3D prints optical structures and elements using modified wide format industrial inkjet equipment.

Transparent droplets of a curable acryllic resin are jetted and then cured by strong UV-lamps which are integrated onto the print head. The results of the printoptical process are geometric or freeform shapes that may include transparent prisms or lenses, as well as full color 3D graphics and textures, all in a single print job.

Optical surfaces – no post-processing

The results of the process are geometric or freeform shapes that may include transparent prisms or lenses, as well as full color 3D graphics and textures. Optical quality surfaces are achieved with no post processing. Processing 3D printed optical plastics avoids complicated and costly conventional processes, gets rid of obsolete stock and shortens the time to market significantly.
