Eyewear Trends: 3D Printed Eyewear At Vision Expo East 2014


Clearvison-3dAt Vision Expo in Las Vegas last year, ClearVision had an in booth interview with a top 3D printer manufacturer at Stratasys (formerly Maker-Bot) . If you have ever wanted to see what a 3D printer does and how it works, it will be on display and printing again in their booth #4421 all three days of expo. At 1 pm everyday, you will also have a chance to be a part of a in booth interview.

I highly recommend you attend, as 3D printing will be changing all manufacturing as we know it today. There are now about 6 companies providing 3D Custom Eyewear online. That Trend is  going to grow. Along with that trend, the consumer will start purchasing 3D printers, which are  available at Staples.

As part of this, I will be moderating two of the interviews on Friday (3D) and Saturday (Mens Fashion)

Friday; From 1:00 – 1: 30 p.m., Stratasys’ Director of Marketing, Bruce Bradshaw, and ClearVision‘s President, David Friedfeld as they discuss how 3D printing is impacting the optical industry, the evolution of the technology, and what the future holds. Gain one-on-one access to Bradshaw and Friedfeld after the conversation to further instigate the topic. Here’s a preview of what you can expect..

Saturday the 3D printer will still be up and running but if you are looking to capture the mens fashion eyewear market, you will be able to listen to top men fashion blogger and one of your own Yasmin from Park Slope Eyecare and see what they say about Mens Fashion Trends.

Sunday, March 30; A Full Day of 3D Demonstrations: The 3D printer will still be running, come by to see how it works.
