3d Systems Snaps Up 3d Design Firm Cimatron

3DS is taking over 3D design company Cimatron in order to improve its own position in the rapidly-growing 3D design and manufacturing industry.  The acquisition  is expected to strengthen the company’s 3D printing and manufacturing portfolio.

Cimatron is known for providing CAD and CAM software products and solutions for 3D manufacturing, which has taken off during the past few years. 3D printing can be used by companies not only to bring down manufacturing costs of components, but also while creating prototypes, allowing them to more quickly and cheaply design effective products — ranging from the vehicles to prosthetics
