Customized Products Made Easy
We simplify the customization of products and physical objects.
In the same way digital content has helped customize music, video entertainment and communication, we seek ways to support the digital customization of products. Our patents allow products to be customized from anywhere using an ordinary computing device, such as a laptop or smart phone. The goal is to enable a person to take a product and make it uniquely theirs by adding features they select on a computing device which can alter the look, shape, size or functionality of the product, making it much more valuable. We call this do it yourself digital customization.
Using a computing device to select printable add on features.
Most products are mass produced to provide the lowest cost through economies of scale. While this business model has offered cost savings, it has come at the expense of variety and choice of features. Our patented method offers products that are able to receive an add on feature that is digitally selected, providing a potentially unlimited availability of features. So, you can have a generic product with an attachment area that allows you to select an add on feature online which can be attached to your product to deliver the look or functionality you desire.. This add on feature is created using advanced printing technologies that are able to produce simple aesthetic improvements or highly specialized one of a kind features and functions.
A leap forward in digital customization. Easy as a single click.
As printing technology evolves, innovation is enabling customization never seen before. For example, 3D printing is opening up designs and materials that could never be produced in mass production or traditional manufacturing. So now products are able to be produced with add on features that customize shape, weight, texture, flexibility, functionality and more with advanced material properties and complex 3D designs. Best of all, you don't need to be a 3D design expert, instead just select your desired features to be printed into your customized add on. That's it!
This wave of advanced customization paves a path towards new smart products that can be designed to the specific needs of the user.
Problem: Customization in 3D Isn't Easy
99% of the population are not 3D designers.
As powerful as 3D printing is, very few of us have the ability, desire or time to design a printable 3D feature. It can take specialized talent, time, equipment and patience to create specialized features. This can get expensive and impractical for the average person, until now.
Solution: One Click Customization
Instead of designing a printable feature, simply select it online and have it delivered to you quickly. Most of us have access to a computer and are able to click a selected feature online. No need to design. No expensive equipment required. It can all be done in less than 5 minutes. All you do is select a feature (color, shape, material, or function) and this add on piece that you select can be printed and delivered to you as simply as ordering any online product. No education required. Nice!
When you purchase a customized product it is unique, special and generally more expensive. Customized products are usually not intended to be changed, upgraded or updated. Our business model uses an attachment area that enables a digitally printed customized add on feature to be removably attachable so that it can be changed, updated or refreshed. Instead of buying multiple products to deliver varying looks or functionality you can simply change the digitally printed add on feature anytime you want to further customize your product or even rejuvenate it to give it more life.
