sd3d-logoBack in October, automations technology company SD3D, which specializes in 3D printing solutions, announced that they had entered into an agreement to acquire Polish 3D software startup Printelize. SD3D had originally been a client of Printelize, using the platform’s client management system and auto-quoting tool to provide its clients 3D printing production service estimates, and plans to fully integrate the platform into its technology portfolio, which has been hard at work to try to automate the whole 3D printing industry. It was announced today that SD3D’s acquisition of Printelize.com is now complete, for an undisclosed amount.

logo-printelize-small-rThe Printelize platform was formed in 2014, to make it easier to both order and offer 3D printing services to businesses and consumers. The web-based sales automation side, Printelize Professional, lets smaller 3D printing businesses create their own interfaces, for a monthly subscription fee, in order to better compete with the bigger companies. It helps clients manage their 3D printing workflow, and there are many available customization options. Printelize Marketplace is an e-commerce platform and two-sided marketplace where users, both amateur and professional, can search for service providers.

San Diego-based SD3D, a one-stop-shop for 3D printing, scanning and design, is well-known for its 3D printer and printing filament reviews and innovative Adaptive Build Environment (ABE) system, which helped make the company’s 3D printer farm successful. The company quickly realized the value of Printelize to its strategic growth plans, and the acquisition includes both Printelize Professional and Printelize Marketplace.

David Feeney, CEO of SD3D, said, “The acquisition of Printelize provides incredible competitive and strategic advantages that will allow us to better serve the needs of our current and future customers. SD3D is in the process of creating an end to end 3D printing automation platform for business, and the Printelize software will serve as the foundation.”

sd3d-and-printelizeUsers of Printelize should not expect any stops or hiccups, as SD3D will be continuing the platform’s current services, while also advancing the 3D printing sales automation platform. Customers can continue to utilize the familiar features, but should be prepared for updates that will make the service even more user-friendly and helpful, such as mesh healing and automatic file conversions. This will allow SD3D’s technology to advance, while also creating further value for clients who already use the Printelize auto-quoting tool for their own businesses.

“I’m thrilled to have a team like SD3D be as passionate about Printelize as I am. Me and my team built Printelize to solve large issues in the 3D printing industry and are excited to see what SD3D does with it from here,” said Tomas Chichowicz, former CEO and founder of Printelize. “The enterprise software we created is the ultimate answer to the needs for digital transformation of the industry. At the end of the day we saw more added value of integrating our innovation into SD3D than doing it ourselves. With SD3D expertise the solution can be brought to the next level and secure its dominant position in the market.”

sd3dSD3D was founded in 2013 and is working on an end to end automation platform, to allow fully autonomous additive manufacturing. The company plans to develop the Printelize platform into a booming 3D printing operating system and automation platform, full of innovative features. Discuss in the SD3D forum at 3DPB.com.
