The addition of both the Studio System™ and Production System™ from Desktop Metal strengthens CATI’s commitment in helping solve their client’s business needs while getting them to market faster. Desktop Metal 3D printers join CATI’s robust portfolio of best-in-class solutions including; SOLIDWORKS Software, Stratasys 3D Printers, Creaform 3D Scanners, and Dassault Systèmes 3DExpereince Platform.

“We’ve heard from our clients over the past few years about their interest in Metal 3D Printing. Until now, there wasn’t a solution on the market we could stand behind to meet our client’s needs.
