In 2009, Monoqool presented a unique innovation to the eyewear world – glasses characterized by a spiral-shaped hinge. This resulted in the first Monoqool collection, the NXT series. The collection was picked up quickly by designers and went on to win several international design awards.

Monoqool takes innovation to the next level with the 3D printed IQ series in... . A revolutionary method of developing and producing eyeglasses in Denmark. Where other countries move their production to low wage countries, Monoqool challenges the method used to produce eyeglasses.

Monoqool is writing even more history with the Slider series. The lightest frames in the world are now being printed daily for you. The result is eyewear that weighs just 4 grams and has no screws at all. 

3D printing technology

There are many 3D printing methods available on the market.  The method Monoqool uses is 'powder-based 3D printing technology'.

The designs in the computer are sent to the 3D printer. The 3D printer contains a robot and this robot spreads layers of 0.1mm polyamide over the surface printing area. The laser then does its work, hardening the polyamide into a hard and solid substance. Then, another layer of polyamide is spread and the laser does its work again. That process keeps repeating itself until the frames have been fully printed. Actually, hundreds of eyeglass frames are printed in a single printing phase, 1 phase takes 24 hours.

The glasses frames are then sent to the polishing machine, where the frames are polished until they are smooth. After that, they go through the coloring process, are mounted and are then ready for you to wear. You are now wearing the finest and lightest 3D printed eyeglass frames in the world.
