The additive manufacturing market leader will join forces with the global portable 3D measurement solutions provider to leverage both cutting-edge 3D printing and 3D scanning technology in a bid to streamline the entire process.
“3D printing and 3D scanning go hand-in-hand,” Creaform’s Marco St-Pierre, Division Vice President, Innovation and Technology explained. “This combination is targeted at allowing companies of all types to accelerate their product development processes and ensure that their products truly meet the needs for which they were designed. We believe that Creaform’s Go!SCAN 3D scanners and VXmodel Scan-to-Print software are the perfect complement to Stratasys 3D Printers. There is clear and natural synergy between our technologies, audiences and applications, and partnering with the market leader is a tremendous opportunity for us.”
Authorised Stratasys and Creaform resellers across the North America market will now sell products from both companies to end use parties. The agreement states that both companies will invest in joint marketing capabilities and joint channel recruitment.
Bruce Bradshaw, Vice President of Marketing, Stratasys, North America, commented: “By partnering with Creaform, Stratasys is able to offer its customers access to a new source of 3D printable content. This is expected to enhance existing solutions and open up new applications in a wide range of industries. We view Creaform to be an excellent addition to our growing partner ecosystem.”
