FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Becoming3D, a leading provider of 3D printing design-to-manufacturing solutions, today announced it has become a Certified EnvisionTEC Channel Partner for the state of Florida.
As an EnvisionTEC partner, Becoming3D will provide EnvisionTEC's advanced commercial 3D printing products and solutions to its enterprise level customers.
EnvisionTEC is known for its superior DLP® printing technology developed by Texas Instruments. Becoming 3D will now offer clients the EnvisionTEC 3D technology, coupled with its own unique, comprehensive approach to building additive manufacturing solutions. Becoming 3D's solutions include financing, consulting, training, repair, and servicing – business critical components normally not associated with the purchase of high-end commercial 3D machines.
"Brands like Ford, Cartier, and Kraft foods trust EnvisionTEC 3D printing technology, and now we're thrilled to offer the strength of EnvisionTEC's enterprise-class technology, with our methodology, to our customers in the Southeast," said Becoming3D co-founder Grant Sadowski.
While recently gaining popularity in the press and hobbyist sectors, 3D printing in the manufacturing world has been gaining ground for years. A study by Price Waterhouse Cooper found that 67% of manufacturers surveyed in the aerospace industry are currently implementing 3D printing either in full production or pilot and 25% intend to adopt 3D printing in the near future.
And According to Wells Fargo's compiled research, shipments of 3-D printers are expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 95% a year from 2012 to 2017 with revenue expected to grow at 82% in the same forecast period.
Headquartered in Gladbeck, Germany and founded in 1992, EnvisionTEC is known for its DLP® printing technology from Texas Instruments. The DLP® projector used by EnvisionTEC is a professional-grade device which projects volumetric pixels into a photosensitive liquid resin, which cures into a solid object.
Becoming3D offers a full spectrum of 3D printing design-to-manufacturing solutions, and the startup brings cost-effective 3D printing services to businesses. Becoming3D's printing solutions are more efficient than traditional 3D printing methods, and their unique, comprehensive approach to 3D printing reduces waste and overall production costs.
