Z Corp Engages Bentley

Z Corp announced a special arrangement with Bentley, makers of various products related to building, construction and architecture. Bentley's software is used by a majority of such firms, and the deal is to ensure smooth use of Z Corp's 3D printers from Bentley's software.

We have two observations on this development:

  • Z Corp is making a move to get closer to a major market. It's a good move, we think. But does it mean they will be focusing on the high-end market, rather than the low end?
  • The frail links between users and 3D printers are slowly tightening. In a world where we all take for granted the ease in which 2D documents are produced, we still have a gap in the 3D space.
