LPS2018 home to Launch of Luximprint Additive Manufacturing Services for New Lighting System Design and Development

Luximprint, in its position as a multi-market service provider for 3D printed optics, chose the LED professional Symposium and Expo (LPS2018) as launching event for its novel additive fabrication services for decorative and optical 3D printed plastics. Lighting engineering and design professionals in need for fast, flexible and cost-effective optics solutions can now take benefit of the unique advantages Additive Optics Manufacturing technology offers for new system design and development.

LPS2018: Springboard to the European Lighting Industry

Choosing ‘LED professional Symposium + Expo’ along with the co-located ‘Trends in Lighting’ event as a launching platform has been a strategic decision for Luximprint. Driven by passion and the power to innovate, change is coming from the inside, straight from the heart. Likewise, the LPS and TIL events form the heart of the European lighting industry and offer an excellent stage to take-off the multi-market prototyping activities for illumination optics.

Additive Optics Fabrication at LPS2018

Printed optics have come a long way in the lighting industry. Marketed over the recent years by Luximprint, optical 3D printing is a future-proof methodology of rapid prototyping custom LED optics by means of digital fabrication technologies. Direct ‘CAD-to-Optic’ manufacture avoids costly and uncertain commitments related to conventional optics manufacturing processes in the early development stages, such as upfront tooling investments and minimum order quantities.

Printed products find their way in a variety of engineering and (temporary) project applications, such as general lighting, (light) art, event- and interior design. Luximprint solutions serve mainly inspirational and functional demonstration purposes, as well as mold-/concept validation and pre-series fabrication.

Optographix: Optical Translucency for Branding and Interior Design

In addition to functional optical plastics, so-called ‘Optographix’ – as the name suggests a unique combination of optical translucency and full-color graphical expressions – are initially proposed at this years’ events to trigger lighting and interior designers.

Optographix – compromised of full-color patterns and optical translucency – add value to artistry and design of spaces and are set to be a next method of translating a corporate or brand image by using a unique combination of 3D printing, optics and light.

Design for Additive Optics Fabrication

Educated and trained by Luximprint, the Luximprint ‘Optics Design Hub’ includes a network of affiliated optics designers through which Luximprint facilitates its users in designing for additive manufacture. Among them is Physionary, a Netherlands based optics design collective.

LPS2018 AWARD Listing

Being listed for the 2018 LPS / TIL Award, Physionary provides a new revolutionary methodology for designers with light, enabling them to ‘put light where needed’. Physionary ‘Faceted Lens Technology’ greatly combines with Luximprint Additive Optics Fabrication Services as tailored lenses now can be made in a fast, flexible and cost-effective way. Above all, it provides anyone involved in the design and application of lighting systems with new tools for a more efficient and responsible use of light.
