Carbon acquires 3D printing software company

3D printing company Carbon has acquired ParaMatters, a company which makes software for additive manufacturing (AM).

According to Carbon, the acquisition expands its current software capabilities to include topology optimization, enable increased automation and make it easier to create more complex, higher performance part designs.

"We recognize the critical role software design tools play in our customers' digital transformation,” said Phil DeSimone, co-founder of Carbon. “For far too long, designers have settled for software design tools that adhere to the limitations of traditional manufacturing. Many design tools of yesterday are not optimized to take advantage of industry innovations, including advanced 3D printing materials and manufacturing processes. Both Carbon and ParaMatters have shared the same vision to provide modern tools to ensure product development teams can create better products in less time."
