The future of commercial 3D printing looks to be in good hands after success between the CDI and Melbourne-based lights manufacturer LimeLite. 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 on the Australian market.
Collaboration between LimeLite and the CDI’s Advanced Product Design team proved a resounding success, creating a range of 3D printed track-mounted downlights that were previously unseen on the luminaire market. These lights have dramatically increased the amount of choice available to users, creating an efficacious product that will have a lasting effect on the lighting industry, while remaining extremely cost-effective.
