Mixee Labs, a 3D printing startup run by Nancy Lyang and Aaron Barnet is trying to bring the consumer into the design process. They have launched custom figurine, jewelry and cufflink creator, and now another one: a thin and customizable 3d printed Slim Wallet.
The wallet is under 1cm thin, and it can hold at least 3 credit cards, driver's license, a subway card, a few dollar bills and keys.
What makes this product unique is that it is fully functional straight from the 3D printer. The clasps that holds everything in the wallet cleverly utilize the flexibility and strength of 3d printed nylon plastic. You simply lift up the clasp, and slide in your cards in, and everything snaps into place. This wallet is designed by nxt3d with artwork by Bona Kim.
On Mixee Labs' Slim Wallet Creator page, you can choose from a variety of patterns and embellishments, or upload your own images or text. Try the new 3D printed Slim Wallet Creator here.
