Make Eyewear has a range of eye-catching frames and even lets you design your own.

Industrial design student David Minich has launched an online store called Make Eyewear, which uses a 3D printer to create frames for glasses and also offers customers the option of designing their own pair.

With the customizable, standard frame collection, you can choose from a variety of different colors and sizes. These cost $150, with an extra charge for prescription lenses. There’s also a freestyle service starting at $450, for those who’d like to create their frames from scratch. Simply send in a sketch and then you’ll be paired with a designer who will develop your idea, taking into account all of the technical factors necessary to build a pair of glasses.

The frames are created using an additive process, through the 3D printing service Shapeways. This allows the company to put more emphasis on the design process and enables them to offer “virtually unlimited customization”.
