LUXeXceL Group Appointed as Research Associate by 3DS SolidWorks

LUXeXceL Group B.V., innovator of Printoptical Technology, is appointed as Research Associate by 3DS SolidWorks. LUXeXceL develops and manufactures optical products, structures and special graphic effects by means of a novel digital 3D printing process and is mainly focused today on the global LED lighting industry.

Mr. Arnaud Kooij, owner of ‘Design Solutions’, authorized SolidWorks reseller in Benelux: “The Printoptical technology of LUXeXceL offers disruptive possibilities across several optical industries.

I am highly impressed by the possibilities of this new technology. From now, LUXeXceL can rework all CAD files and convert these into their Printoptical prototyping and additive manufacturing processes. This is an excellent start, offering great savings in both time and cost to users of our software in the optical industries. We are looking forward to further establish our cooperation with LUXeXceL and extend our offer of useful solutions to our users.”

“In fact this means the digitization of plastics fabrication. As the “mold” is digital, a CAD file, the design freedom is unparalleled and complexity is free” according Mr. Richard van de Vrie, CEO of the LUXeXceL Group. “With our digital technology we offer the Lighting Industry flexibility and new competitive advantages to reduce R&D time, development cost and inventory risks. Long production runs of optics are no longer advantageous as the inventory becomes digital so this means less working capital and no more write-offs of obsolete inventory. Next to that, the Lighting Industry gains flexibility and now can offer customers optical solutions for every project by printing On-Demand lenses, diffusers, colored optics, micro optics, free forms, optographic surfaces and 3D textures. We are convinced this digitization of optics means a new future for optical design and manufacturing”.

The first market that will benefit of the advantages of the partnership is the fast growing LED lighting market.
