It is time that 3D printing becomes a technology used to create and customize the products we depend on every day.

Industrial designers John Mauriello and Marc Levinson, architect Doug Ponciano, and Richart Ruddie decided to take the step by launching Protos Eyewear with the intention of developing a line of consumer-grade 3D printed sunglasses.

Based in San Francisco, California, Protos develops and manufactures custom eyewear with a tailored fit based on an individual's facial measurements and dimensions.

Using advanced processes such as selective laser sintering, 3D scanning and parametric 3D modeling Protos offers customizable products starting at $180, for those who'd like to have their own pair of sunglass.

It's all about adapting to new technologies - "At a higher level, our objective is to facilitate the transition of 3D printing processes from their current status as a prototyping tool to a viable manufacturing solution." says Protos.
