Grapevine, Texas – GoEngineer and Concept Laser have entered into a partnership that teams the strengths of each company to expand its respective footprint in metal additive manufacturing. GoEngineer will be a marketing channel for Concept Laser’s portfolio of machine solutions.

The partnership leverages the two companies’ respective strengths:

• GoEngineer has been providing customers with products for more than 30 years, combining Stratasys additive manufacturing tools with SOLIDWORKS design solutions. This competitive offering allows GoEngineer to educate customers across the entire design spectrum to print, helping organizations bring designs to life. GoEngineer operates 18 training & support centers located throughout the Central and Western U.S.

• Concept Laser’s global leadership in powder-bed laser metal additive manufacturing systems.

“The relationship with Concept Laser presents a powerful opportunity for GoEngineer to understand and assist our customers as they develop strategies to move into the metals market while minimizing risk,” says Brad Hansen, CEO of GoEngineer.

“GoEngineer’s outstanding reputation in additive manufacturing design, services, and support makes them a premium partner,” states John Murray, president and CEO of Concept Laser Inc.

The two organizations recently jointly produced a race car chassis which will be a showcase product at future events. GoEngineer designed the fully dense metal chassis using a workflow involving metrology-grade laser scanners, analysis-driven topology optimization software, and parametric CAD tools. The metal chassis was built on the Concept Laser M2 cusing machine in aluminum. The race car chassis will be displayed at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) 2017 Conference March 19-23, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.
