3D Tech Partners
This is the story behind CDG’s 3D Tech Partners, why we are working hand-in-hand with these organisations and how they have succeeded as the market leaders in the world of 3D Technology.
Partners listed in alphabetical order:-
|Partner||About the Manufacturers||Partnership with CDG|
|3D Systems (3DS) are the pioneers of 3D Printing, dating back to 1986. Their founder Chuck Hull invented the world’s first 3D printer which became the stereolithography apparatus SLA technology users still use to this day. In addition there is CJP (colourjet), MJP (mutlijet) and DLP (digital light) 3D printers via CDG to the UK market. 3DS head quarter is in North Carolina, USA, although their products are manufactured around the world.||3D Systems professional range of 3D printers are sold and supported via CDG as the UK distributor & key support partner. Models supported includes:
|Cambrio provide smart software solutions that drive the future of manufacturing. Their key products include the full portfolio of Cimatron CADCAM software solutions. Cimatron software applications include: Mould, Die, Electrode Design, Conformal Cooling and NC manufacturing. HQ is in the USA, although the software development is based in Israel. Cambrio are now part of the Sandvik Group of companies which includes the GibbsCAM and MasterCAM manufacturing solutions.||Cimatron CADCAM software licences, support, maintenance and training are all provided by CDG in the UK & Ireland.|
|Evatronix offer high resolution 3D scanners under the EvixScan brand. The key models include Optima, Quadro, Fine Precision, Wide Range and Evixmatic. The high-spec cameras are ideal to high resolution scanning to capture fine detail, for high resolution & accuracy, and for inspection applications. The 3D scanners are manufactured in Poland and distributed by CDG in the UK.||EvixScan high resolution 3D scanners are sold by CDG in the UK & Ireland in combination with the Geomagic range of software solutions for reverse engineering & inspection.|

|Simcon manufacturer the Cadmould and Varimos advanced simulation and analysis software products. Cadmould is the fastest way to simulate the injection moulding process with functionality covering Filling, Warping, Compression, Cooling and a whole lot more. Varimos is a DoE (design of experiments) tool for injection mold tool design and optimisation looking a cycles times, temperature, pressures and all related parameters.||Cadmould and Varimos is sold and supported by CDG in the UK & Ireland.|
|Sinterit manufacturer the most world’s most affordable and versatile, small format SLS 3D printers. The models are the LISA, LISA-Pro and NILS 480 which can print in PA Nylon, PP Polypropylene, TPU and TPE materials. The Lisa family of printers are manufactured in Poland and imported by CDG.||The whole range of SLS printers, accessories and materials are sold and supported by CDG in the UK & Ireland.
|Wematter have pioneered a new clean SLS solution called Gravity. Instead of flooding the build chamber with Nitrogen (or Argon) to create an inert atmosphere (required to avoid the oxidation of PA11 for example) Wematter remove the oxygen. Also, the use cartridge to leads the powder and do not need a messy powder handling station. In addition there is a large choice of materials including PA6, PA11, PA12, PP, TPU, ESD Safe, Flame Retardant and Food Grade. All products are manufactured in Sweden and imported by CDG, where we are contracted for UK sales and support.||The Wematter 3D printers are supplied and supported by CDG.|
