Oxford, UK – September 2, 2014 – Fuel3D, developer of 3D scanning solutions, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Ultimaker that will see the company’s groundbreaking 3D scanner offered as part of a bundle deal including the Ultimaker 2 3D printer to customers in the United Kingdom.
The agreement will see the companies offering the bundle deal to customers via their websites and through both companies’ direct sales teams in the UK, starting in October 2014.
“We want to transform people’s ability to create original content with their 3D printers and to do that we need to work with industry leaders like Ultimaker,” said Stuart Mead, CEO, Fuel3D Technologies. “This partnership with Ultimaker in the UK is a perfect tie-in for us and we are looking forward to working with them to bring the benefits of the Fuel3D scanner to 3D printing enthusiasts across the country.”
Since launching its first 3D printer in 2011, Ultimaker has quickly established itself as a prominent player in the burgeoning 3D printing market.
“We are very excited about the possibilities for the generation of 3D content offered by Fuel3D’s scanner and are excited to be working with them,” said Alex Mayor, Director, Ultimaker. “While the UK is the first market that we will be targeting this offer with, there is the potential to introduce it into additional territories over time.”
The companies will be jointly promoting each other’s products on their stands at the forthcoming 3DPrintshow tradeshow in London, September 4 – 6.
Fuel 3D Technologies raised over $300,000 for the development of an affordable, high resolution handheld 3D scanner through a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Earlier this year, the company announced a $2.6 million investment from syndicate of private investors, led by Chimera Partners. The company is currently working to fulfil Kickstarter orders, with full commercial availability of the scanner slated for later this year.
About the Fuel3D scanner
Fuel3D has developed the affordable handheld 3D scanner that delivers high resolution shape and color capture for a range of 3D modeling applications, such as 3D printing, as well as on-screen applications like 3D art, animation and game development. The scanner’s ability to accurately capture color 3D models of the face is ideally suited to the rapidly growing trend of personalization.
Fuel3D is the world’s first 3D scanner to combine pre-calibrated stereo cameras with photometric imaging to capture and process a 3D model in seconds.
