Stratasys Buys 3-D Printer Maker Solidscape

Additive manufacturing system maker Stratasys has acquired
3-D printer manufacturer Solidscape  for $38 million plus certain
purchase price adjustments.

Solidscape serves investment casting applications in the
jewelry, medical, dental, and industrial markets. Solidscape is recognized as
the leader for casting applications that require high-precision, ultra-fine
feature detail, and a smooth surface finish.

Stratasys will support Solidscape product development with
the goal of producing systems that target new applications.

“We believe there is a significant market opportunity to
expand its business in the under-penetrated jewelry market,” Stratasys
CEO Scott Crump said in a statement.
