'Protos is an eyewear company based in San Francisco that was founded in 2011. Marc Levinson, John Mauriello, Doug Ponciano and Richart Ruddie partnered up and formed Protos with the intention of developing a line of consumer grade 3D printed sun glasses.
Protos uses a process known as 3D printing to manufacture their frames. This intricate layering process results in bold and striking designs that are impossible to make through standard manufacturing methods. Protos eyewear is lightweight and durable, and the material provides a unique look and feel.
Finding a pair of glasses that fit properly and look good is a painstaking process, which usually ends in a compromise on the customer’s part. We will soon be offering custom eyewear with a tailored fit based on an individual’s facial measurements and dimensions. This cannot be done efficiently through any other means of manufacturing.'
