ZWSOFT and UnionTech Reached a Strategic Cooperation in Overseas Markets

GUANGZHOU, CHINA: October 9th, 2021

ZWSOFT and UnionTech reached a strategic cooperation in overseas markets in September 2021. UnionTech is a leading company in China’s 3D printing industry, and ZWSOFT is an all-in-one CAx (CAD/CAE/CAM) provider in the field of engineering software. It is expected that they will carry out in-depth cooperation in the development of “3D CAD+3D printing” solutions and markets.

3D printing (or additive manufacturing) is the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a digital 3D model. Therefore, engineering software for R&D and design like CAD plays an indispensable role in the whole process from model design, data processing to printing. Also, at the printing step, data pre-processing software, printing control software and the 3D printer are needed.

As the first company providing engineering software for R&D and design that listed in China, ZWSOFT offers reliable all-in-one CAx (CAD/CAM/CAE) solutions with self-developed 2D CAD, 3D CAD/CAM, and electromagnetic/structural simulation technologies. Covering the whole process of product development from designing to manufacturing, ZW3D is an integrated 3D CAD/CAM solution powered by its self-developed 3D geometric modeling kernel.

Colin Lin, Developer Ecosystem Director at ZWSOFT, thinks highly of this cooperation, “With the integration of the excellent 3D printing solutions from UnionTech and ZW3D, we are excited and ready to further satisfy needs of users in the additive manufacturing industry, from 3D modeling, data processing to 3D printing.”
