Materialise NV, the Leuven, Belgium-based additive manufacturing group, has formalized its partnerships in China by becoming a member of the China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance.

The company said in a statement: "Through the newly signed partnership agreement, Materialise, as a member of the alliance, commits to support other members of the China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance through software and training while the Alliance commits to promote the legal use of Materialise's software."

Explaining the company's reasons for the move, Materialise CEO Fried Vancraen, said: "Materialise has long been active in the Chinese market and although we have supported many companies over the years, we were still somewhat on our own. Now, as members of the China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance, we will be working together with all of the major players in the Chinese 3D Printing market, with the shared goal of unleashing 3D Printing's full potential in China in a sustainable and healthy manner."
