From shoes, to eyewear, to sports equipment, to jewelry: the possibilities for consumer 3D printing continue to grow, especially as high-volume technologies gain prominence and new materials hit the market. At this point in time, we are seeing a number of 3D printing companies solidify their positions in the consumer AM market, leveraging production-grade solutions and sophisticated workflows to create consumer products with efficiency and at a competitive cost. In terms of its adoption, AM is becoming increasingly popular for applications that require a high degree of customization (such as insoles and eyewear) as well as to create new, higher-performance designs (as evidenced with the adidas lattice midsoles). AM is also unlocking new opportunities in consumer segments that had previously been limited by manufacturing, such as smartglasses.

In this eBook, we delve into many corners of the consumer AM segment, spotlighting the growing influence of high-speed photopolymerization, a truly captivating chat with German manufacturer OECHSLER and 3D printing company Carbon, an enlightening Q&A with lens 3D printing specialist Luxexcel about smart eyewear and a detailed map of consumer AM players.

3dpbm’s eBook can be viewed by scrolling through the document above or downloaded for viewing on your favorite mobile device. In our effort to maintain an open discourse and open access to AM news, the publication is free to access. We at 3dpbm have been ardently following the progress of consumer AM for years, and we are pleased to put the industry in the spotlight in a new, reader-friendly way!
