Personalized shoe lace locks
Polyamide, dyed and powdershot blasted with a dirt and water resistant coating.
This part was created using the fully automated Dimension4 supply chain platform for personalized 3D-printed products. Thanks to the built-in optimization algorithms of the platform, the part was manufactured quickly and very cost effectively (less than 1 euro), with near-zero human intervention. The part itself is made from a strong and flexible polymer (PA2200) that was treated to be water and dirt resistant.
