Research, design and development of a range of 3D printable track lighting.

Article by Annika Sutter

Along with research partner, limeLITE, CDI is creating a unique, high-end design where the 3D print is the outcome.

"3D print is not usually used for a commercial outcome-it's used to iterate a design process…Whereas this time, the outcome IS the 3D print, which is quite interesting," says project lead, Dr. Blair Kuys, "It's a low-cost new outcome… [which] cannot be replicated through other means. You can't injection mold it, you can't cast it, you can't blow model it. There is no other manufacturing process able to create the outcome we're doing, except for 3D printing."

This project will be completed at the end of 2016.
