Photocentric Innovator in Photopolymer, 3D Printing


Our vision for a clearer future

3D printing has revolutionised the way in which eyewear is being created. Newfound freedom to design frames. No stock holdings or set up costs, 3D printing allows fast fashion and on-demand manufacturing.

3D printing enables eyewear manufacturers to be more creative, opening opportunities for distinctive shapes and styles, increased functionality and complete customisation, to stand out from the crowd, with your own look and feel.

Putting you in the frame

The eyewear industry and Photocentric are developing partnerships to change designs more rapidly and adapt to customer need. From design to production, we are with you every step of the way. Collaborating to promote your brand through to scale up production.

Eyewear process

1) Scan

For uniquely designed frames, customer anatomy is scanned. Alternatively, generic profiles are created.

2) Design

Surface textures can be applied via the software. Data is imported into CAD software, the lenses are virtually formed and designed. Eyewear is now configured.

3) Print

The eyewear file is sent to the Photocentric printer, and the parts are created.

4) Post Processing

Eyewear frames are washed, dried and cured with Photocentric wash and cure units.

5) Finishing

Frames are finished and can be coloured, coated and polished.

6) Final Assembly

Finally, frames are checked, assembled, packaged.

Grow Your Business

The major cost benefit of Additive Manufacturing is time. Production days lost to waiting for tooling accounts for 1,000’s. Costs can be reduced against volume and we can operate on a Pay Per Part costing.
