Formlabs and New Balance

Leading the Future of Performance Products With Customized Manufacturing

Learn how Formlabs armed New Balance with the completely new 3D printing material and production system they needed to launch TripleCell, a new platform that’s poised to deliver the true on-demand performance customization that today’s consumers crave.

Consumers Have Changed, Manufacturing Hasn’t

The modern consumer demands custom products that can be ordered from anywhere, from a variety of devices, and quickly delivered. On digital platforms, customization is everywhere. Physical products, constrained by the rigidity of traditional manufacturing, haven’t caught up.

The Freedom to Design and Manufacture High-Performance Custom Products

3D printing offers the freedom to affordably produce complex, customized structures. New Balance understood this potential, but needed a way to move the technology from prototyping into production at scale—and find a material suitable for end-use in footwear.
