3D Printed Eyeglass Frames

Sandra Battistel of Eyespectacle (the "Story behind the frame") has done a bit of investigation on how eyeglass maker Mykita recently produced the "Mylon", a unique frame design made through 3D printing. 
 
Battistel takes us through the process used by Mykita, including images of the equipment and frames through the production process. It appears that Mykita is not simply making a prototype using 3D printing, but is actually printing them for production, which is becoming increasingly common for short-run items. 
 
Perhaps we'll start seeing more consumer items directly created using 3D printing?
