Become a Z Corporation Authorized Channel Partner.


Z Corp. has a strong network of channel partners around the world that sell and support ZPrinters and ZScanners.  These authorized distributors and resellers are certified to provide the highest quality of service and support for our customers.
Z Corp. is always looking to add new channel partners to our team—partners who have industry and technical expertise, a focus on customer service, and a solid track record of business growth and success.  Join the team that will help you develop new business opportunities, diversify your solution offerings, and enter growth markets in 3D printing and scanning.

Market Leadership

Z Corp. is the market, technology and innovation leader in color 3D printing since the company’s founding in 1994.  With more than 5000 ZPrinters installed around the world, Z Corp. is well positioned for continued growth in the $1B+ ‘Additive Fabrication’ market.  ZPrinters are being used for functional prototypes and visualization models in aerospace, architecture/engineering/construction, automotive, consumer products, education, entertainment, geospatial, government/military, industrial machinery, medical/dental, and other industries worldwide.

Business Opportunity

3D printing represents the largest and fastest-growing segment in the Additive Fabrication market according to the Wohlers Report 2008, with an average annual growth of 40% from 1996 through 2007.  Wohlers forecasts the industry sales to double over the next four years.  Z Corp. partners are poised to participate in this growth opportunity by selling and servicing the only true color 3D printing systems available in the industry.  Z Corp. offers competitive margins on product sales and annual maintenance agreements.  Moreover, channel partners earn a percentage of 3D printing consumable products ordered by their customers.  This annuity stream becomes very attractive to our channel partners once their installed base begins to grow.

Handheld laser scanning systems represent an important incremental sales opportunity for Z Corp. Channel Partners.  Our Z Scanner line of hand held laser scanners are frequently sold to the same customers who buy CAD software and 3D printers from our channel partners.  Z Scanners are much simpler to set up and use than other types of scanners, making them easier for Z Corp. Channel Partners to sell.

Partner Support

Z Corp. offers its channel partners a variety of sales, marketing and technical support programs.  Sales training, market development funds, lead generation programs, and certification training are offered to all authorized channel partners.  Online support through the ZCentral web site is a convenient and powerful tool that is continuously updated with sales tools, online learning courses, application notes, best practices, model images and ZPrint files, competitive information, and other industry, sales and support related content.
