Nikki Kaufman, the founder and CEO of Normal, will speak about her company’s use of 3D printing to mass produce a personalized product at the 2015 Additive Manufacturing Conference (AMC) scheduled for October 20-21. Kaufman’s company was started as a result of her quest for earphones that would be comfortable to wear for extended periods. Normal provides fully customized earphones—buyers take photos of their ears using an app to provide a model—that are produced via fused-deposition modeling (FDM) on the company’s Fortus 250mc machines from Stratasys.

Normal will also be 3D printing custom earphones for a number of registrants randomly selected throughout the conference.
