Kitchener, Ontario, Canada — January 15, 2018

Structur3D Printing is proud to announce its new EMEA and APAC distribution and reseller agreement with UltimakerGB. In 2016, Structur3D Printing became an official Ultimaker reseller with the launch of its Discov3ry Complete printer systems built on the Ultimaker printers. This new agreement extends the relationship between Ultimaker and Structur3D and brings the Discov3ry Complete offering to Ultimaker resellers globally (excluding North America).

Structur3D is part of the growing hardware startup scene in Kitchener-Waterloo Region —globally recognized as Canada’s Silicon Valley due to its significant innovation and technology talent. Since its beginnings in 2013, Structur3D’s mission has been to standardize the use of soft materials — such as silicone, biomaterials, electronic inks, and food — for 3D printing.

In order to build on the success of their standalone Discov3ry extruder, Structur3D sought a partner to create a fully integrated, all-in-one paste and plastic printing solution. They chose Ultimaker due to it being open source, very well engineered, and extremely reliable.

The result: The Discov3ry Complete. Now, with this reseller agreement, this versatile system, with a full standard warranty and technical support — is available for distribution to resellers globally (excluding North America).

“Current customers, including internationally ranked research, academic, and commercial institutions have really embraced the Discov3ry Complete system and all the potential it brings to 3D printing. We are tremendously excited to be able to offer our technology more readily worldwide,” says Charles Mire, CEO and Cofounder, Structur3D.

“We’ve watched Structur3D’s business grow over the past couple of years, and our customers and resellers have seen growing interest in the Discov3ry Complete product,” adds Paul Croft, Director, UltimakerGB. “We are delighted to bring this cutting-edge technology to the wider global market.”
