Brendan Byrnes: What specifically do you think Geomagic helps 3D Systems with and what will be your role with 3D Systems?
Ping Fu: 3D Systems is focused on content to print. They understand without great content print doesn't add much value and software needs content. My new role will be chief strategy officer of 3D Systems upon closing and I will be responsible for not just software but all of their business, which is global service, consumer, medical, machine and material and software.
