Consumers Can Customize their Own Frames and Print at Home for FreeNEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — Always at the vanguard of innovation, GlassesUSA.com, the leading online eyewear retailer, announces the launch of 3D printable glasses. The files, which were designed by renown digital sculptor, Janne Kyttanen, can be printed at home, at no cost. Consumers will now be able to personalize their frames to reflect their individuality and style, while also adding customized prescription lenses available at GlassesUSA.com.
"For the past 10 years, we have been disrupting the way consumers purchase their glasses and have incorporated new technologies to make the purchasing experience better. The addition of 3D printable frames marks a new milestone in our history, creating previously unachievable possibilities in customization," said Daniel Rothman, CEO of GlassesUSA.com. "We are proud to be leading the way in educating consumers on how to purchase glasses online and letting them take control of their eyewear needs."
There are three templates available to choose from – Phoenix, Mermaid and Dragon – all based on the brand's best-selling frames, and each one featuring a different style: wayfarer, rectangular and round, to fit various face shapes. Consumers can customize the frame shape as they like; choose colors; add text to the temples such as name, phone number, or inspirational words for ultimate personalization. The only limitation is consumers' imagination. The 3D frame files are compatible with STL and OBJ formats, and after completing the printing process all that's left to do is order the lenses from GlassesUSA.com.
"My mission is to share my work freely to empower others to create. The 3D community is always looking for new projects and as so many of us wear glasses. This is a great opportunity for creating and printing something both useful and artistic," says Janne Kyttanen, digital sculptor and 3D artist.
To commemorate the launch of 3D printed glasses, GlassesUSA.com is giving consumers an opportunity to design their own frames for a chance to win a $300 gift card to GlassesUSA.com. Participants must upload their design to Instagram, tag the brand, and use #GlassesUSA3D to enter the contest by Feb. 28, 2018. Two winners will be selected by Janne Kyttanen and announced by Mar. 1, 2018.
