Specsy Launches Custom 3D Printed Eyewear in US Market


Specsy Announces US Launch of AR Designed and 3D Printed Custom Frames

Toronto, Ontario – February 27, 2018 – Specsy has announced the entry of their technology driven 3D printed custom eyewear line in the United States, at the Vision East Expo. Based out of Canada, Specsy creates custom frames that are designed in-store with augmented reality and 3D scanning, and crafted through 3D printing.

Specsy provides optical professionals with a retail ready app to design custom glasses tailored to the patient’s aesthetic preferences and technical requirements. The Specsy retail app uses augmented reality, allowing patients to design frames on a live image of their face. By utilising 3D facial scans and a digital design process, Specsy provides optical professionals the opportunity to offer a truly custom frame.

“After extensive research and development, we are thrilled to be introducing cutting edge innovation and technology to the optical field” said Milan Madhavji, Specsy’s Chief Technology Officer. “Specsy will change the way optical professionals approach frame fitting by removing any restrictions currently faced when working with a fixed inventory of frames.”

Based out of Ontario, Canada, Specsy utilises an in-house multi-colour 3D printer to craft their frames. By taking advantage of the most cutting edge technology available in 3D printing, Specsy frames achieve a durability level previously unattainable in 3D printing. With a plastic resin frame forming their core collection, Specsy has their eyes set on offering a custom metal frame in late 2018 and new innovative materials into the future.

About Specsy

Based out of Toronto, Canada, Specsy was started with the belief that glasses are one of the most intimate items you share with the world. So why, in a land full of curated coffees, personalized playlists, and customizable everythings, are we still mass producing glasses? Using our expertise for 3D printing in the field of healthcare, we decided that it was time for a shift. Our goal is simple: craft 3D printed, one-of-a-kind glasses that are the perfect fit for your style and shape. Specsy uses cutting edge, multi-colour, 3D printers to create a foundation. After the 8 hour printing process, the one-of-a-kind frames spend 3 days going through a multi-step finishing procedure while being assembled and inspected by hand.
