natural3D is a 100% bio-based polymer made from non genetically modified castor oil beans which we use in our 3D printing process. This material is not only derived from a renewable source, it also enables us to produce the frames without creating solid or cutting waste, so the whole process leaves an extremely small ecological footprint. natural3D produces extremely robust and durable components comparable to those created with our naturalPX material. It is also solvent resistant and plasticizer free.
Our natural3D printed frames are extremely flexible and impact resistant. This robust material ensures that the frames retain their shape and are built to last. 3D printed frames are also extremely lightweight, in fact, they are 30% lighter than acetate. The cutting-edge finishing and sealing processes used during 3D printing produces frames with a beautiful finely pored surface, so they look and feel great too.
