The crowded field of 3D printing equipment suppliers just got a little less so.

3D printer maker 3D Systems Corporation is buying Cimatron Ltd. for approximately US$97 million to strengthen its position in the fast-growing 3D design and manufacturing business.

Israel-based Cimatron provides 3D design software products.

“The integration of Cimatron’s software products into 3D’s existing offerings allows us to stake a leadership position in 3D-printing-centric advanced manufacturing,” 3D Systems said. “The addition of Cimatron’s products to the existing line enables a seamless digital workflow between design and traditional and additive manufacturing processes.”


3D Systems is headquartered in Valencia, Calif.
