Resellers Leverage Surging Market Shift to 3D Tools That Are Fast, Flexible and Affordable

Concord, MA, November 24th, 2010: ANSYS SpaceClaim, the leader in 3D Direct Modeling solutions for rapid concept design and geometry manipulation, today announced new resellers across the Mid-Atlantic and Mid-West regions. The new resellers include Solid Technologies, and 3DP, and represent ANSYS SpaceClaim’s aggressive strategy to continue to build the US-Americas channel and expand the sales force. These resellers join a rapidly expanding list including EMS, covering the Southern region.

“We’re increasingly hearing from our customers that they need a tool that will help their engineers easily and quickly innovate, design, edit and prepare models for analysis. This trend is fueling a dynamic shift toward 3D direct modeling rather than more complex solutions,” said Ben Marino, President/CEO of Solid Technologies. “ANSYS SpaceClaim is a natural choice for us to add to our arsenal, open up new opportunities and win more business. We are integrating ANSYS SpaceClaim into the solutions we provide our customer base and helping them maximize their design options and deliver outstanding results.”

ANSYS SpaceClaim’s groundbreaking 3D Direct Modeling solution, ANSYS SpaceClaim Engineer, enables sales, concept and simulation engineers to rapidly and effectively use 3D to solve business, engineering and geometry problems. Resellers are able to help their customers win more business, shorten the time-to-market, and drive new levels of innovation through ANSYS SpaceClaim’s ease of use, flexibility, and compatibility with traditional CAD products.

“We look forward to working with our new resellers as they expand their markets and leverage new opportunities,” said Steve Costello, Vice President of Sales, Americas, ANSYS SpaceClaim. “We are aggressively building out our channel and partner relationships to meet the demand for engineering tools that are easy to use, require little to no training and are powerful enough to handle complex tasks in concept modeling, bid modeling and model preparation for CAE simulation. ANSYS SpaceClaim was designed from the ground up as the optimal solution for 3D direct modeling.”

Z Corp. Introduces Two Value-Priced 3D Printers Starting at Just $14,900

New ZPrinter 150 is a ‘business-quality’ 3D printer at an industry-low price; and the new ZPrinter 250 is lowest-price ‘multicolor’ 3D printer


BURLINGTON, Mass., USA – Z Corporation today continued its quest to make 3D printing available to every designer, engineer, architect and student with the introduction of affordable, commercial-class 3D printers.

The ZPrinter® 150 (monochrome, $14,900) and ZPrinter® 250 (multicolor, $24,900) have a small physical  footprint ideal for the classroom, department, or small business. Unlike low-end 3D printers, the new ZPrinter 150 and ZPrinter 250: are easy to use out of the box; build 3D models with five times the resolution; and have the industry’s lowest operating cost (lowest cost per model).

In addition to being affordable to purchase and use, the new ZPrinters print five to 10 times faster than other 3D printing technologies, with the unique ability to print multiple, stacked models simultaneously. This dramatic throughput advantage enables ZPrinters to support entire classrooms or departments at their busiest times.

The ZPrinter 250 and other color ZPrinters are the only ones capable of simultaneously printing in multiple colors. Color 3D printing enables designers and students to better evaluate the look, feel and style of designs by enhancing 3D models with graphics, logos, text, labels, and design comments.

ZPrinter 150/250 specifications include:

  • Resolution: 300 x 450 dpi
  • Minimum Feature Size: 0.016 inches (0.4 mm)
  • Vertical Build Speed: 0.8 inch/hour (20 mm/hour)
  • Build Size: 9.3 x 7.3 x 5 inches (236 x 185 x 127 mm)

Both new ZPrinters incorporate automation features first offered in the midrange ZPrinter 450, including automatic setup, automatic powder loading, and self-monitoring of materials and print status. At home in any office or classroom, they are clean, quiet and free of any hazardous waste.

“The price of ZPrinting is coming down to enable broader adoption by mainstream users,” said Z Corporation CEO John Kawola. “We’re driving that revolution with new machines offering new levels of value. Though smaller in scale than the rest of our line, these ZPrinters deliver trademark Z Corp. speed, quality, and affordability.”

Pricing, Availability
The ZPrinter 150 and ZPrinter 250 are available now through Z Corporation’s worldwide reseller network. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price in the USA is $14,900 USD and $24,900 USD respectively, ex works (options, shipping, local taxes, and duties not included. International pricing will vary – please consult your local Z Corporation reseller.).
