3D Systems to aquire Geomagic, Inc.

3D Systems announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to acquire Geomagic, Inc.

Geomagic is a leading global provider of 3D authoring solutions including design, sculpt and scan software tools that are used to create 3D content and inspect products throughout the entire design and manufacturing process

3D Systems have worked with Geomagic (and its Sensable Group) for many years to accelerate the adoption of 3D content-to-print solutions, and they believe that the time is right to combine their efforts to further democratize access to design and 3D printing.

Geomagic’s powerful 3D capabilities, including capture, mesh editing, design, sculpting, inspection and haptic solutions expand 3D Systems’ 3D content-to-print portfolio of 3D printers, materials, global parts services, consumer products and solutions and complementary software solutions, including Rapidform. Together, they will be able to better serve our combined
customers, concurrently maintain and enhance the existing Geomagic and Rapidform product lines and offer more innovative and integrated solutions and streamlined workflows. 3D Systems looks forward to providing their distribution partners with a broader portfolio of products and local support with a global reach.

The acquisition is expected to close during the first quarter of 2013, after customary closing conditions are met.
