Creaform and Stratsys form partnershipClick image to enlarge
3D printing and additive manufacturing supplier Stratasys Ltd., and Levis, QC-based Creaform, a supplier of portable 3D mesurement solutions, have formed a joint marketing partnership in North America.

The new partnership allows users to leverage cutting edge 3D scanning technology and world class 3D printing technology designed to streamline the process across various industries and applications.

Users are able to accurately scan any 3D object and quickly generate print-ready files or even perform direct 3D-scan-to-print. Example applications includ product design: reverse engineering and prototyping; manufacturing-development of custom dies and molds, and the fabrication of jigs and fixtures; health care-design of prosthetics, orthotics, surgical aids and guides; and education-mechanical engineering and design curriculums.

“3D printing and 3D scanning go hand-in-hand. 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,” says Creaform’s Marco St-Pierre, division vp, Innovation and Technology. “There is clear and natural synergy between our technologies, audiences and applications, and partnering with the market leader is a tremendous opportunity for us.”

“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,” says Bruce Bradshaw, VP of marketing, Stratasys, North America.

Jointly authorized, Stratasys and Creaform resellers in North America will promote and sell each party’s components to the end user. Under the terms of the agreement, both companies have agreed to invest in joint go-to-market capabilities including marketing and joint channel recruitment.
