The American Standard line of 3D-printed tap fixtures titled 'DXV' is classically elegant. Each fixture takes 24 hours to be printed into a solid and usable appliance. The 3D-printed tap fixtures are created through selective laser sintering before they are hand-finished to reveal a polished and sleek appearance.

The DXV line includes three different styles of faucets. Each style is a dark color and conveys a sophisticated sleek look. They are made of a strong and durable alloy material.

One of the faucets is created with 19 waterways to allow water to cascade out of the spout like water running through a riverbed or stream. Each of the other faucets uses a single spout with intricate design features. One faucet resembles a chain link fence, which allows the water to appear magically.
