California-based SLA 3D printer manufacturer Nexa3D has announced a partnership with UK based 3D printing value-added reseller CREAT3D. Through the partnership, Nexa3D will expand its presence to the UK, allowing CREAT3D to distribute its 3D printer in the local market.
This move from Nexa3D is part of a rapid network expansion that aims to grow its worldwide go-to-market strategy. The UK is considered a significant region within Nexa3D’s expansion plans, as highlighted by comments on the announcement from Avi Reichental, Executive Chairman and CEO of Nexa3D. “CREAT3D,” Reichental continued, “is the ideal partner to deploy our stereolithography 3D printers.”
Likening the speed of competing 3D printers to old “dialup internet, Reichental says Nexa3D machines will enable customers to “convert” to t”to broadband-like productivity” manufacturing “products that break speed and cost barriers.”

The NXE400 SLA 3D printer
Nexa3D’s NXE400 SLA 3D printer was introduced at RAPID + TCT 2019. Of the system, Reichental states that “This technology completely blows off the doors for what’s possible in terms of speed and size, and will unleash whole new levels of productivity and optionality for end-users.”
CREAT3D joins a host of resellers recently signed by Nexa3D, including U.S.-based Dymanism, which will help the company expand its North Amrerican channel sales. Nexa3D has also recently reached agreements with resellers in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Russia as part of its European expansion, and with Brulé in Japan.
The company aims to introduce and democratize its SLA 3D printers in these global markets as an alternative and potential upgrade to users’ currently installed systems.
Reichental adds, “Our NXE400 presents a significant upgrade for experienced stereolithography users with its ultra-fast printing speed, high volume precision ready to use parts.”
