One of the huge powers of 3D Printing is the ability to create an individual design without any sort of startup costs. Uncommon is really leveraging this by designing 3D Printed lamps.
UnCommon Lamps takes any image and create a custom lamp from the artwork. They then photograph that lamp and upload it to Angled.io. When an order is made, Angled prints the custom lamp and ships it to the customer. This leaves UnCommon to focus on marketing, design of new artwork for lamps, and licensing. They no longer have to maintain a 3D Printer farm and the logistics around manufacturing.
Now UnCommon does have components that are not 3D Printed in their designs. Namely the Lightbulbs and wiring. These pieces are warehoused by Angled and assembled when each lamp is made to order.
We are very excited about the products from UnCommon. They take advantage of the 3D Printing process to create truly unique products.
And here is the best part. We have partnered with UnCommon to allow other designers to create custom lamps based on the UnCommon Design. More details will be coming soon, but for now basically think of being able to make Lamps part of your custom merch, rather than just T-Shirts.
