COLUBMIA, SC — ZVerse, a Columbia-SC-based developer of applications for full color 3D printing has raised a $3.5 million Series A funding. Prominent Triangle entrepreneur Scot Wingo joined Atlanta-based Mosley Ventures, Capital A Partners and other strategic investors in the round.

The company said it also inked a strategic partnership and commercial agreement with 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) to advance applications and market opportunities for full color 3D printing.

As part of the agreement, ZVerse and 3D Systems will co-develop ZVerse’s patent pending post processing technology for producing high gloss and moisture resistant full color 3D printed products. In addition, the companies will collaborate on development and marketing of 3D Systems’ Photobooth technology using ZVerse’s licensed content and distribution channels.

The funding will be used to grow the company’s leadership position in full color 3D printing applications for licensed content of major brands and to commercialize ZVerse’s proprietary B2B 3D content creation platform, LAYR.

“The ZVerse software platform is core to unlocking 2D image content for 3D printing. We believe ZVerse is uniquely positioned to help solve 3D printing’s content problem as the 3D printing market trends towards exponential growth,” says Wei-Chun Tai, Noro-Mosley partner who joins the company’s board.
