3D Systems buys cloud collaboration software vendor TeamPlatform

|About: 3D Systems Corp. (DDD)|By:, SA News Editor

TeamPlatform's cloud-based software allows project design and engineering teams to share files and collaborate on CAD/3D printing projects.

3D Systems (DDD) says TeamPlatform's offerings will be integrated with its Geomagic professional 3D object design/scanning software, and also its Cubify.com consumer 3D printing portal/marketplace.

With this acquisition, 3D Systems is encroaching on Autodesk's (ADSK) turf. The CAD software giant competes with TeamPlatform via its comprehensive Autodesk 360 cloud CAD software suite. (PR)
