Octobre 71, first company to join 3dadept.shop’s category of 3D printed products
A few weeks after the announcement of 3dadept.shop, we are pleased to announced the availability of Octobre 71’s glasses on our online store.
According to Christophe Mouty, “the majority of glasses sold in France are made in low-cost Asian countries. It was while trying to reverse this trend that [he] turned to the new possibilities offered by 3D printing.”
After two years of testing, the glasses of October 71 come to life with the help of well-known partner, Sculpteo, a provider of 3D printing services. Manufactured in the Parisian factory of the specialist of 3D printing, these glasses with a nice design are manufactured with the technique of powder sintering (SLS) and polyamide.
They are almost 30% lighter than glasses made of plastic or acetate. With regards to timing, this process allows the manufacturing of quality products in a short amount of time. For October 71, 3D printing is not only fast but also qualitative.
