Shining 3D is known for its line of EinStart 3D printers and EinScan 3D scanneres, both of which it updates with new models on a regular basis. Earlier this year, the company released the new EinStart-C 3D printer, a step up from its predecessors in terms of print quality, safety, and speed. Shining 3D’s products have always been well-received, but the company offers more than just 3D printers and scanners – it’s also a carrier of 3D software as well. Shining 3D recently announced a partnership with Geomagic, and now the company is partnering with two additional software companies to provide access to some of the most popular programs on the market.

Robert McNeel & Associates is the maker of Rhinoceros, the well-loved 3D graphics and CAD software program used by many. The company is partnering with Shining 3D to offer a joint solution for 3D modeling and digitalizaiton. Powered by Rhinoceros, the solution allows users to edit, analyze, document and design models of any size or complexity level.

“We are pleased to work with SHINING 3D to offer customers with solutions that fit more users’ demands and professional requirements,” said Scott Davidson, Robert McNeel & Associates. “Our customers can now leverage the additional expertise of SHINING 3D and the tools they provide to create a more productive 3D workflow.”

In addition, Shining 3D customers will also be able to purchase Robert McNeel’s software packages, which include Rhinoceros, Flamingo, Penguin, Bongo, Brazil and others, through Shining 3D’s distribution channels.

“By partnering with Rhinoceros 3D, a company that shares same spirits, culture and vision, SHINING 3D creates innovation for small and big business with new technologies, creative ideas and powerful tools,” said Oscar Meza, VP of Global Sales at Shining 3D.

Shining 3D has also partnered with Mesh2Surface, a software program that offers several features that allow users to convert 3D scans into CAD models. It was developed by Bulgarian company ADA 3D as a Rhinoceros plugin. The 20-year-old ADA 3D is also known for its other 3D applications such as 3D reverse engineering, metrology inspection, augmented reality and more.

“Mesh2Surface has been providing customers with the easy-to-use, flexible and powerful software that allows them to apply 3D technologies to their business more efficiently and profitably,” said Kostadin Vrantzaliev, Product Manager of Mesh2Surface. “The software bundle we cooperate with SHINING 3D will be standout on the market, delivering much more value at a lower cost.”

Under the terms of the agreement, customers will be able to purchase Mesh2Surface through Shining 3D’s global distribution network, availing themselves of the software’s CAD data through reverse engineering capabilities. Starting today, users can also benefit from lower costs and enhanced capabilities, according to Shining 3D.

“Over the last 13 years, SHINING 3D has been the pioneer of providing the complete 3D solution from 3D scanning to 3D printing in 3D industry,” said Meza. “The same strategy we share with Mesh2Surface is providing customers with easy-to-user products at an affordable price.”
