-Xometry is Dassault Systèmes’ first “prime partner” - a new category of partners providing best-in-class buying experiences to users of MAKE Marketplace, Dassault Systèmes’ on demand manufacturing service -Engineers can get their designs made faster with instant access to Xometry part manufacturing price quotes without leaving SOLIDWORKS and CATIA design environments -Dassault Systèmes takes next steps toward connecting all design and manufacturing stakeholders in one seamless process
Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) (Paris:DSY) and Xometry today announced their partnership to provide customers with a seamless, integrated way to produce parts that accelerates the concept to manufacturing process. Engineers using Dassault Systèmes' SOLIDWORKS and CATIA applications will have automatic and immediate access to Xometry price quotes on MAKE Marketplace for manufacturing parts, without leaving their design environment. The announcement was made at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 in Nashville, Tenn.
Engineers can now play a greater role in the design to manufacturing aspect of part production by focusing on the shape of a prototype as well as the cost to produce it. Whereas sourcing manufacturing price quotes from service providers used to require a dozen clicks in a web interface, it now takes place instantaneously in a one-click immersive experience integrated with SOLIDWORKS and CATIA. Engineers can view Xometry price quotes on their screen in the context of their design, and click to have it manufactured, all while retaining the option to get instant or manual quotes from other MAKE Marketplace suppliers.
"We launched the MAKE Marketplace in 2018 to make it easy for customers to design and manufacture. Our partnership with Xometry takes this a step further," said Sébastien Massart, head of corporate strategy, Dassault Systèmes. "Customers can order high quality additive manufacturing or CNC machining parts in one click at the right price, thanks to Xometry instant quoting capabilities. This is all part of our vision to continuously reduce the friction that customers face going from design to manufacturing."
Through this partnership, Xometry becomes the first "prime partner" of Dassault Systèmes' MAKE Marketplace. This new category recognizes qualified service providers having industrial-grade quality certifications, and production capacities to answer demanding needs as well as high satisfaction rates. Dassault Systèmes plans to add other "prime partners" to the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace ecosystem.
"Engineers need the right tools to do their job successfully, and this includes working with a responsive, trusted manufacturing partner," said Randy Altschuler, CEO, Xometry. "As the leader in 3D printing and on-demand manufacturing, we have served many customers in the MAKE Marketplace since its launch. Through our deeper partnership with Dassault Systèmes, we can directly connect with customers and make a commitment to provide a quote on every customer query. It's all about faster manufacturing."
