Synnex Australia signs distribution agreement with 3D Systems

First major IT distributor to offer personal 3D printers to Australian reseller channel

Synnex has become the first major Australian IT distributor to offer 3D personal printers to the reseller channel after striking a deal with 3D Systems.

Synnex has signed a new agreement with 3D Systems and will carry the vendor's third generation Cube 3, a personal 3D printer offering a new, compact design, dual colour printing and is suited to home use.

In addition to the Cube 3, Synnex will also carry the Sense 3D scanner, a user-friendly portable 3D scanner, allowing users to scan real-world 3D objects in seconds. Synnex Australia product director, Jay Ko, said 3D was the next big thing in printing.

“There is no doubt that 3D printing represents an exponential growth opportunity for the channel," he said.

"As consumer and personal 3D-printing applications have continued to grow in the last few years, more and more awareness of the technology has driven a huge influx of competition to the market.

According to a company statement, Synnex Australia chose 3D Systems because it was the biggest name in 3D printing and provided the product offering with the best features and value for customers.

"This is just another example of our continued investment for growth, and particularly into a new era in the print industry,” Ko said.

3D Systems vice president and general manager, consumer products, Rajeev Kulkarni, said Synnex had been a key partner for his company in North America with its reputation in the print products category.

"We are excited to expand our reach together with with Synnex Australia," he said.

Cube 3 stock will be on hand from July 2014 and will be available through selected national retailers and authorised resellers.
