Z Corporation Joins Bentley Developer Network to Meet Burgeoning Demand for Quick, Affordable Building Models

AEC-focused partnership to enhance interface between Bentley 3D design software and Z Corporation 3D printers

BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Z Corporation, maker of the world's fastest 3D printers, today announced it is partnering with Bentley Systems, Incorporated to streamline the generation of physical architectural models from designs created with the help of Bentley software for architecture, engineering, construction (AEC) and operations.

The companies will work together to tighten interoperability between 3D designs that architects, engineers and contractors create in Bentley software and the 3D printers that bring these designs into the physical world as models. 3D-printed building models are in demand as fast, affordable and accurate alternatives to handcrafted and laser cut models.

"We look forward to working closely with Z Corporation developers and providing them with all of the information, tools, technical support and programming resources they need," said Phil Chouinard, Director of Bentley Developer Relations. "The goal is to establish a transparent interface between Bentley's comprehensive portfolio of software for sustaining infrastructure, including its BIM solutions, and Z Corporation's highly flexible and cost-effective 3D printing technology. We know our mutual customers will be excited about this new ability to easily turn their design work into physical models."

Included in Bentley's comprehensive portfolio of solutions and products is software for building information modeling (BIM), which is the production of 3D digital models that encompass geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, and component properties.

The partnership is important because of the soaring interest in 3D printing in the AEC market, according to Olimpio DeMarco, Z Corporation Director, Business Development. "Speed, affordability and accuracy make 3D printing an attractive alternative for building physical architectural models. The unique ability of ZPrinters to quickly and cost-effectively produce high-definition models in both traditional white or multiple colors gives building designers a wide array of options for representing rooms, buildings and communities. This partnership will only enrich and expand these capabilities."

Z Corporation and Bentley's Applied Research Group have long cooperated on advanced application research involving 3D printing. Z Corporation joining the Bentley Developer Network formalizes this relationship and dovetails with Bentley's commitment to helping architects, engineers, constructors, and owner-operators improve project quality.
