D – Rastal has invested in a 3D printer. Using rapid prototyping the printer produces glass ideas fast and at low prices as semi-transparent 3D models in original sizes. Thanks to the innovative technology – the printer builds the tool out of layers of photo-polymer plastic following the so-called SLA process – the designs for the exclusive glasses that are developed in the company’s in-house design studio can be produced within a few hours and haptically tested.
