Founded in 1994, it did not take Stratasys’ founder Scott Crump long to become one of the leaders in the field of 3D printing and additive construction. Today, Stratasys is a company that comprises many different enterprises under one roof, therefore offering an unbeatable array of expertise, knowledge and insight. As a step towards the expansion of this expertise, Stratasys acquired MakerBot, one of the leading specialists in the production of 3Dprinters, thus securing additional valuable knowledge in this visionary field of 3D technology and prototyping.
