GOES, The Netherlands, Jan. 7 – LUXeXceL Group B.V., manufacturer of optics for the LED lighting industry, has partnered with FX64 Software Solutions of Arzberg, Germany for development of custom optics design tools to facilitate use of LUXeXceL’s patented Printoptical fabrication process.
LUXeXceL manufactures optical solutions using their patented “Printoptical” 3D printing process which requires no use of molds, special tooling, or post processing. 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. FX64 is proud to be among the first software firms to have recognized the potential of LUXeXceL’s innovations and is excited to become one of their first partners for development of the new web-based design software needed to provide easy access to their capabilities.”
Richard van de Vrie, LUXeXceL’s CEO, explained, “From using the commercially available LambdaSpect light simulation software from FX64 we became confident that they would be an excellent partner for development of custom software also. 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.”
