Printoptical partLUXeXceL Group B.V., manufacturer of optics for the LED lighting industry, has partnered with FX64 Software Solutions (Arzberg, Germany) for development of custom optics design tools to facilitate use of LUXeXceL’s patented Printoptical fabrication process.

LUXeXceL manufactures optical solutions using the Printoptical 3D printing process.  This novel one-step “CAD-to-Optic” process offers luminaire manufacturers significant cost reductions and time savings and offers optics design professionals greater design freedom and rapid prototyping.

FX64 Software Solutions CEO Igor Zupevc commented, “While optics design software has previously been oriented toward subtractive manufacturing methods such as diamond turning, full exploitation of the new additive manufacturing process invented by LUXeXceL demands and deserves new design tools with more advanced capabilities for parametric customization and creation of freeform, asymmetric geometries.”

Richard van de Vrie, LUXeXceL’s CEO, explained, “We are extremely pleased that Igor and his team have come to understand how our manufacturing process enables new design freedoms and we look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration with them for development of custom software to take better advantage of those freedoms.”
