Velo3D created a United States distribution partnership with GoEngineer as demand for its additive manufacturing system grows. GoEngineer will operate as an extension of Velo3D by dedicating resources to educate designers about the potential of SupportFree technology for their designs. GoEngineer will also provide sales and service expertise to support Velo3D’s complete solutions portfolio, which includes the Flow pre-print software, its Sapphire metal AM printer, and the Assure quality assurance and control system.
Velo3D is transforming the analog supply chain to digital manufacturing. As the creator of the industry’s first SupportFree solution for 3D metal printing, their product suite is an end-to-end digital manufacturing solution for producing metal parts. With Velo3D Flow print preparation software, Sapphire printer, and Assure quality assurance software, manufacturers can accelerate product innovation, become more agile and responsive to market needs, and reduce costs. The company is based in Silicon Valley and is privately funded.
GoEngineer will be Velo3D’s largest distributor in the United States; existing sales networks and direct purchase opportunities remain in place. With more than 35 years of experience and thousands of customers in high tech, medical, machine design, energy, and other industries, GoEngineer provides best-in-class design solutions including CAD, PLM, and 3D printers. The company has been the leading global leader in sales of Stratasys’ polymer printers and the North American leader for SolidWorks’ sales for many consecutive years. The new distribution partnership inscribes itself in this successful vein.
“We are pleased to partner with Velo3D to help manufacturing companies across the U.S. producemission-critical parts for industrial use,” said Ken Clayton, CEO of GoEngineer. “Velo3D delivers breakthrough SupportFree technology for the design and manufacturing of metal parts that are not hindered by geometric constraints nor compromised by part quality. Metal additive manufacturing is an important piece to GoEngineer’s portfolio and we are excited to help our customers differentiate themselves even more.”
“GoEngineer has gained the trust of thousands of customers with their rich expertise in additive design solutions. I see them as a strategic and invaluable partner in educating customers about the opportunity our technology brings to design and manufacturing. GoEngineer is the most compatible national partner for Velo3D,” said Benny Buller, founder and CEO of Velo3D. “Together, we will help end-users build what they want without the constraints of yesterday’s standards. Design freedom, agile production, and quality assurance are requirements that Velo3D is uniquely positioned to meet.”
Velo3D is well known for enabling geometric freedom through its patented SupportFree process, which reduces the consideration of support structures for complex passageways, shallow overhangs, and low angles. Coupled with their non-contact recoater, Velo3D’s printing process can create the intricate cooling passageways and fuel delivery channels needed to achieve high-output fluid transmission and electrical power.
