3D Systems is too focused on personal 3-D Printing. This is why my money invested in this company has plummeted lately, though I did make a pretty penny. They need to focus more on commercial sales and to USA buyers. 30% of their sales are to Europe...
future of 3d companies is great but saturation of new companies take a piece of the pie of the future. new ipo to come, private companies also are getting factored in 2 price now. also product is only good for prototype not for production yet but priced as if is. ddd and ssys are not only companies out there , hp and other big companys looking to get in too. this all has to get factored into the price of the stock
also, 4D is simply adding replication to the 3D printing process. I'd like you to take a look at that acquisition of Rapidform back in October. oh you know, the company with software that scans items via photos and creates a 3D model capable of being printed. this, sir, is replication.
i do believe you just verified your belief in the future for 3D Systems. go long.
