ScanSource Inc. has created a new technology team dedicated to 3D printing and signed 3D Systems as a key vendor.
3D printing has become more affordable over the past year and users – from entrepreneurs to scientists – are finding innovative uses for it, including making inexpensive prosthetic limbs. With such advancements in mind, ScanSource’s move comes as it says the channel is ready to embrace 3D solutions.
“ScanSource has been evaluating the 3D market for quite some time," said ScanSource CEO Mike Baur. “ … we found the timing to be right and the market to be ready for value-added distribution."
ScanSource’s 3D products are available in the United States immediately.
