Become a Partner

Velo3D supports a Partner Ecosystem that drives our vision of helping innovators create the future. Our end-to-end metal additive manufacturing solution enables the printing of parts that were previously not possible. We collaborate with partners for commercial distribution, software and simulation, post-processing, and academic institutions to enable customers to build the parts they need, speed up development, and reduce product costs.

Strength Through Partnership

Velo3D’s partnership programs supports both commercial and technical partners of all types. Our primary mission is to help engineers solve the most difficult problems. By leveraging the most advanced manufacturing platform, we aim to bring your innovations to light. Whether that is a new part, business venture, manufacturing facility, or technology, we want to help you achieve your goals. See some of our partnership programs below and reach out to us if you are interested in fully optimizing with Velo3D.

Commercial Partners

Contract Manufacturers

Leverage the power of today’s most advanced manufacturing capabilities even without investing in a printer. Contact one of our Contract Manufacturing partners to get started.

If you have a concept that must be manufactured as designed, without compromise, or a supply chain challenge for a critical component, then our CM partners can help you achieve that goal.

Distribution and Sales Partners

If you are interested in joining our Contract Manufacturing Network or acquiring the Sapphire® production system for your own designs, our distribution partners can help you figure out the right options for you.

Technical Partners

Startup Companies

Holding a physical manifestation of your imagination in your hand is powerful. It can be an emotional list to the company and also a key milestone necessary for fund raising. However, manufacturing cutting edge technologies that are new and unique can be a challenge. Many startups lack the capital to develop AM experience in house and need access to contract manufacturing partners who leverage the latest technologies.

If you are a start-up company looking to push the limits of innovation, talk to one of our experts to see if you can get access to the Velo3D startup program.

Some of the key benefits include

  • Lead sharing
  • Co-marketing
  • Reduced print costs
Software and Simulation

Simulation and design software enables designers to create amazing, fully optimized designs with the potential to leave a mark on society and change our world for the better. However, without the right manufacturing technology to back it up, those designs can get lost – compromised away to fit existing manufacturing. By updating your manufacturing strategy, you gain the power to unlock those designs and achieve the most optimal technologies possible.

If you offer a leading design software or simulation package, explore the synergy made possible through Velo3D’s advanced manufacturing solutions.

Some of the key benefits include

  • Lead sharing
  • Co-marketing
  • Reduced print costs on marketing projects
Post-Processing

As more markets learn to adopt additive manufacturing, we have seen a clear trend – to build the highest performance parts at the necessary levels of quality, engineers need access to the best tools for the job. That usually comes in the form of a combined solution approach to manufacturing. Printing and post processing go hand-in-hand.

If you offer advanced post-processing capabilities, reach out to Velo3D engineers to see how we can work together. Our as-printed surface finish combined with high quality, fully dense metal printing eliminates many of the headaches that occur during post processing. Get the most from your technology by partnering with the engineers most knowledgeable about ours.
