HP acquired Germany based 3D scanning technology companies David Vision Systems and David 3D Solutions to further evolve Sprout, a desktop computer with built-in 3D scanner.
The acquisition does not only provide HP with innovative 3D hardware and software assets to advance its market opportunities in the 3D scanning market, but also strengthens their 3D ecosystem, to provide end-to-end solutions, from 3D scanning to 3D printing with its HP Jet Fusion printers.
“Adding the David companies’ technology and capability strengthens our ability to create the world’s only end-to-end 3D ecosystem, from creation, to 3D on-ramp, to 3D print off-ramp via HP’s Jet Fusion Solution. The acquisition adds a robust, stable and production-ready solution, along with a rich software development platform to HP’s portfolio of technologies.”
HP will also acquire the company’s team, that bring its technical and business experience with it. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed at this point.
