(  French eyewear startup Octobre71 is using 3D printing technologies to design and produce customized sunglasses in partnership with French 3D printing service Sculpteo.
Octobre71’s founder Christophe Mouty has over 15 years of experience in optics. The frames themselves are made using a selective laser sintering (SLS) process which works by fusing polymer particles together into a pre-determined (CAD) shape. “[SLS] is fast, reliable, and economical,” Mouty says. A limited range of frames (in a variety of bright colors) is available for order on Octobre71’s website.
