Materialise Expands i.materialise Platform Through Franchise Agreement With 3DVinci Creations

A franchise agreement between Materialise (NASDAQ:MTLS) and 3DVinci Creations has resulted in the official launch of the i.materialise 3D Printing platform in the United Arab Emirates, further expanding the reach of 3D Printing into the GCC and Middle East region.

This franchise agreement has linked Materialise, a leading provider of Additive Manufacturing software and of sophisticated 3D Printing solutions in the medical, industrial and consumer markets to 3DVinci Creations, a provider of affordable and accessible 3D printing technologies with its headquarters in the United Arab Emirates. The partnership further develops the growth of the already successful i.materialise 3D Printing platform with 3DVinci Creations using their Additive Manufacturing Centers in Dubai, UAE and Beirut, Lebanon to bring production closer to users in the region, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.

“i.materialise is a 3D Printing platform that caters to anyone who wants to materialize their creative ideas. With this franchise agreement, we aim to provide access to an even greater number of people who want to realize their dreams through 3D Printing,” said Miranda Bastijns, Head of i.materialise. “This collaboration with 3DVinci Creations is an opportunity to localize quality 3D Printing and the benefits it enables in parts of the Middle East. With the potential of 3D Printing to change the ways we design, make and distribute products, it can truly contribute to creating a better and healthier world.”

Edouard Baaklini, CEO of 3DVinci Creations, stated “At 3DVinci Creations, we strive to find the right 3D Printing solution for our customers, helping them turn their concepts and designs into physical objects. We started out as Materialise customers, using their Magics software. Now, by offering the i.materialise 3D Printing Platform at our new and expanded Additive Manufacturing Centers in Dubai and Beirut, our customers may have a broader range of manufacturing choices. Their creations can be entrusted to two companies that are dedicated to using 3D Printing technology to find creative solutions for their product. Moreover, we are  pleased to expand our 3D Printing services in a stable region ready for growth in this innovative sector.”

The i.materialise online 3D Printing platform offers a range of solutions and services to help those realizing the potential of the technology. Anyone from inventors to students, designers and makers can use i.materialise to create something unique as well as offering their products for sale on the platform.
