NeoMetrix Technologies, Inc., providing solutions for 3D scanning, reverse engineering and rapid prototyping, has formed a strategic partnership with Prototyping Solutions, a 3D printing and rapid prototyping company to promote Stratasys 3D printers and 3D scanners from Creaform.
3D printing has grown significantly over the past few years. However, 3D printers require 3D content in order to print. In addition to other applications, 3D scanning is one method for creating the 3D content required by 3D printers in order to operate. Also, 3D scanning can be used to validate parts created by 3D printers. A quick 3D scan of the printed part can be overlayed onto the original CAD (computer aided design) model of the part in question, in order to validate that the final product is within the required tolerances.
As part of this relationship, NeoMetrix and Prototyping Solutions will be conducting joint marketing and sales activities, such as technical seminars, open houses and trade shows.
