3D printing has already revolutionised manufacturing - and now one e-commerce store is bringing 3D design on demand to consumers, just in time for Christmas.
Design My World has a company ethos of "design can be all around us". Now, its latest move means that 3D printing can be all around us. 3D on demand means customers can quickly and easily choose a unique and personalised gift, using the latest 3D printing technology and techniques, and receive it within days.
The magic of this approach is that no design skills are needed. Instead, the e-tailer has developed its own unique sliding and morphing tool. This enables anyone, on any device, to select, modify and customise their preferred gift. All the main 3D printing materials are available (polymers, metals, ceramics, and composite materials), in a variety of sizes and colours. And of course, Design My World is available for extra advice on achieving the best possible results.
For the launch, Design My World has deliberately selected a range of 3D printed gifts. These include jewellery and cufflinks, mobile phone cases and coasters. Customers can choose their preferred material, pattern and colour, and easily place their order. The plan is to expand the range and launch further options in the near future.
The company was established in 2006, and is known for its stylish and contemporary home furnishing, accessories, and funky gifts. "The future is here," explains Dean Hart, founder. "It has now got to the point where we can offer real-time personalisation and customisation. The advancement of printing technology also means we can print in many materials including metals, plastics and rubber. We are at the cutting edge of 3D on demand."
This strategy also ensures that prices are highly competitive. There's no need to start from scratch - Design My World already has the basic designs in place. This enables customers to build on the foundation, and add their own unique style and taste. This is 3D on demand - for everyone!
Established in 2006, Design My World specialises in contemporary lighting including ceiling lights, pendant lights, table lamps and wall lighting , furniture, contemporary home accessories and funky gifts by international and local designers.
