Leuven, Belgium – November 16, 2015. Materialise NV (NASDAQ: MTLS), a leading provider of Additive Manufacturing software and of sophisticated 3D Printing solutions in the medical and industrial markets, has built a partnership with Gooo3D, the first Korean machine manufacturer of desktop UV-DLP printers.
Gooo3D will develop the G printer, a compact UV-DLP printer suitable for individual users, hobbyists, free-lance professionals and small businesses. Materialise and Gooo3D will work together to equip the G printers with powerful 3D printing software, called G Printer Studio.
The G Printer Studio software will allow users to repair their model, slice it stably, and print quality parts in an easy and reliable way. The intuitive user interface and workflow will allow a broad audience to access 3D printing technology. In addition, Materialise’s fully automated support generation software will be incorporated into the G Printer Studio software, so that users no longer need to generate support manually.
Gooo3D has recently started an Indiegogo project to fund their G printers. Those who support the project on this crowdfunding website will be rewarded with several items, such as a G printer or resin. Materialise and Gooo3D look forward to the release of the G printer and the G Printer Studio software, expected by the end of 2015.
