SolidWorks World 2012 Partner Profile: Stratasys #sww12

You can tell we're getting close to SolidWorks World 2012 now because our partners are sending in their profile responses fast and furious. Today, we hear from Stratasys. If you're at the event later this month, stop by and say hi.


1. Tell us a little bit about Stratasys

Stratasys manufacturers five lines of 3D printers used for prototyping and production, and it operates a digital manufacturing service, called RedEye on Demand. Three of the 3D printer lines carry Stratasys name brands: Fortus, Dimension, and uPrint. We are an OEM manufacturer for HP’s DesignJet3D line of 3D printers, and we manufacture the Solidscape 3D printer line. Stratasys is one of the original additive manufacturing system makers, and has been in business since 1991. 


2. How can your printers help make a SolidWorks user’s life easier?

Having a 3D printer at your desk or around the corner lets you bring your CAD ideas to life and examine them for form, fit, and functional performance. Customers say that just having easy access to a 3D printer has helped them design better, design faster, and improve their products. Users have even reported that they’ve come up with product ideas that would have been impossible to conceive of before their exposure to 3D printing.

3. Why should attendees visit your booth?

Besides some of our larger machines, we will be showing our most recent introduction, the uPrint SE series which is available with or without a complete printer package called the uPrint SE 3D Print Pack. This is a complete start-up kit, requiring nothing else to get up and running. There are no extra costs and no surprises. Notable is that these are the first 3D printers available on the market through a lease. Prices are as low as $290 per month – less expensive than a single outsourced job.


4. How can customers connect with you before, during and after the show?
