Rize Inc. rethinks its partnership with Dassault Systèmes’ SOLIDWORKS brand. The new collaboration includes Rize™ One 3D printers in the SOLIDWORKS design experience with a new Rize product.

Rize One

Rize One is a hybrid printer of the additive manufacturing company. Designed in SOLIDWORKS, it is designed for end-use applications like custom tooling, producing molds and custom and replacement parts.

Due to the collaboration between both partners, the feature Rize 3D Print can be selected from the SOLIDWORKS Tools menu. The Rize add-in automatically transfers files from SOLIDWORKS to the Rize slicing software without the need to export and import files. Users can download the complimentary add-in from the Rize Website.

In addition to Rize recently achieving “SOLIDWORKS Solution Partner status”, functional, isotropic-strength gear shifter parts designed in SOLIDWORKS and produced on a Rize One 3D printer will be featured in the SOLIDWORKS Product Showcase this week at SOLIDWORKS World 2018.

Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes explained that Rize’s add-in that will make it faster and easier for SOLIDWORKS users to exploit 3D printing.

Our focus is to drive additive at scale and bring the 3D printing process closer to end users. The Rize add-in is a step in that direction and demonstrates our commitment to SOLIDWORKS and their tremendous ecosystem of innovators. We are proud to be a part of this ecosystem,” said Andy Kalambi, President and CEO of Rize. “We will continue to work closely with SOLIDWORKS to expand the usage of additive manufacturing.”

As a reminder, Andy Kalambi has been appointed President and CEO of the Boston-based additive manufacturing company in December. With over 25 years’ experience in executive and general management, sales and business development across industries, Andy wore several hats at Dassault Systèmes among which CEO of the ENOVIA brand and the global executive of the 3DEXPERIENCE®. This might probably ease the solid relations with Rize’s partner.
