Revolutionising the lighting industry

The development of a strong partnership between the CDI and Melbourne-based lighting manufacturer LimeLite has led to revolutionary change in the way lights are manufactured and manipulated for the customer, following the success of their previous collaboration, a range of 3D printed downlights.

The development of “Australia’s first low volume 3D Printing Production Facility” opened up a range of opportunities for LimeLite to create 3D lighting “made to order”, dramatically reducing production costs and effectively allowing a local lighting company to grow into a force among the Australian market.

This new application of existing technology allowed the CDI to explore innovative designs for a range of new designs that were previously unseen in the lighting industry, utilising cut-out configuration to alter light output and induce shadow.
