3D printer manufacturer ExOne teams up with Lowe’s Innovation Labs to assist Bespoke Designs, a custom 3D scanning and printing service provided by Lowe’s, in expanding their home improvement and consumer product offerings.
Relying on ExOne’s Binder Jetting technology for metal 3D printing, Bespoke Designs will be able to offer customers unique and customised products for their home and office. These can either be ordered online or at Lowe’s City Center in the Chelsea neighborhood within New York City.
ExOne will manufacture the items after receiving 3D scan data of replacement parts, for example, from Bespoke Designs. The 3D printed product will be ready in less than two weeks.
Tom Pasterik, ExOne’s Manager of Business and Process Development, said: “We are very excited to collaborate with Lowe’s on this new venture, which brings the benefits of 3D printing into the home or office in a practical manner, further advancing the awareness of 3D printing capabilities. ExOne’s Binder Jetting technology integrates well with the Lowe’s business concept due to its ability to fulfill customizable orders in a very responsive timeframe. While remaining cost-effective, the customer receives a high quality, unique product in a timely manner.”
