3D Systems Corporation acquired The3dStudio.com, a provider of 3D and 2D digital media libraries that offers 1.7 million resources to its more than 600,000 consumer and professional members. On the site, a community of nearly 5,000 developers and authors sell their content, which includes free and fee-based, ready-to-download 3D models, tutorials, plug-ins, software tools, stock photos, and images. The3dStudio.com's online marketplace exchange extends 3D Systems' content-to-print offering.
3D Systems welcomed the The3dStudio.com team and Matt Anderson, founder of the site, but will operate and expand The3dStudio.com from its current location in Mesa, Arizona. The3dStudio.com will still be under the leadership of Anderson.
