Forecast 3D, a Carlsbad, California based commercial service provider of 3D printing and short-run manufacturing services, is pleased to announce its acquisition of key assets and technical expertise from GROWit, a 3D printing service provider that specializes in PolyJET service, an inkjet based 3D printing technology. GROWit CEO David Gurrola, upon recently accepting a technical position at 3D printing equipment leader Stratasys (SSYS), chose to sell GROWit equipment and expertise to Forecast 3D due to Forecast's longstanding reputation of high level leadership, quality, and customer service. The addition of GROWit's PolyJET machines further builds on the eight Additive Manufacturing technologies offered by Forecast 3D.
Carlsbad, CA – Forecast 3D has provided 3D printing, rapid prototyping, and short-run manufacturing services for twenty years and this month's addition of GROWit's machines and expertise further expands Forecast's PolyJET offerings. Now, with three new PolyJET 3D printing machines, Forecast 3D doubles their output of PolyJET capacity and can supply parts faster, as well as in full color with the all new Connex 3 platform – the newest 3D printer from Stratasys. The PolyJET 3D printing technology is advantageous for its ability to print in multiple colors with fine detail, smooth surfaces, speed, and precision.
"We are very happy to have found a company whom we are confident can continue to support our customer base at the high level that we have come to be known for as well as be able to offer clients some new Additive Manufacturing processes and technologies," stated the founder of GROWit, David Gurrola. GROWit has been in business for 7 years, and has worked nearly exclusively with Stratasys 3D printing equipment. Forecast 3D also shares a strong relationship with Stratasys and now owns 8 Stratasys machines: 3 PolyJET machines and 5 FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) Fortus machines.
"The addition of the PolyJET technology, together with the expertise of GROWit, furthers our vision of being able to provide our customers with the best Additive Manufacturing option for their particular project," stated Donovan Weber, COO of Forecast 3D. "We believe this solidifies Forecast 3D as the premier independent choice for enterprise 3D Printing solutions."
