Dell will offer 3D printers and scanners from MakerBot as part of a new partnership.
The MakerBot Replicator and Digitizer devices, including the Replicator 2, 2X, Mini, Desktop and Z18 printers and the Digitizer 3D scanner, would aim to provide “an end-to-end 3D design solution for small and medium-sized businesses,” said Dell in a statement.
The products will be added to the PC firm’s range of Precision workstations, which are aimed at enterprise users.
“At Dell we strive to arm start-ups, designers and engineers with the powerful, reliable and cutting-edge technology they need to succeed,” said Andy Rhodes, executive director of Dell’s Precision workstations.
"With the addition of MakerBot’s 3D printers and scanners to Dell’s workstation portfolio, our customers can now bring their innovative prototypes to life much more quickly and affordably.”
Partnering with Dell is another step in building out the MakerBot 3D printing ecosystem that makes 3D printing easy and accessible for everyone,” added Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.
“Dell has done a great job with supporting and enabling small businesses, and we are excited to bring our 3D printing solutions to their customers to unlock their creativity.”
