Australian lighting manufacturer LimeLite has been steadily rolling out a line of track spots and decorative pendants that use 3D-printed components for the key mechanical pieces. Over the years I’ve covered several other manufacturers launching 3D printing for commercial lighting, but LimeLite demonstrates that 3D printing is ready for primetime, that even small manufacturers can embrace it, not just well-funded Silicon-Valley startups or global conglomerates.
Check out this great blog post by Zortrax, the manufacturer supplying the 3D printers used by LimeLite. Below are a couple images of LimeLite’s current printer farm.
I also find it great to see LimeLite using DC power for their track products, like so many other manufacturers.
EDITORS NOTES: My industry friend Marco de Visser also covered LimeLite on his blog 3D Printing Lighting. Check it out for much more in depth info.
