What's Driving Growth at 3D Systems?

3D Systems (NYSE: DDD  ) released earnings this morning, and while shares sold off a bit due to the company not quite reaching the extremely lofty expectations Wall Street had set for it, the earnings report itself was nothing short of excellent. In this video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Isaac Pino tells investors about the growth that has given this company's stock such consistently high multiples in the first place. He also tells us where that growth is coming from, and why this is a story that's going to play out over the long term, despite short-term volatility.

3D Systems is at the leading edge of a disruptive technological revolution, with the broadest portfolio of 3-D printers in the industry. However, despite years of earnings growth, 3D Systems' share price has risen even faster, and today the company sports a dizzying valuation. To help investors decide whether the future of additive manufacturing is bright enough to justify the lofty price tag on the company's shares, The Motley Fool has compiled a premium research report on whether 3D Systems is a buy right now. In our report, we take a close look at 3D Systems' opportunities, risks, and critical factors for growth. You'll also find reasons to buy or sell, and receive a full year of analyst updates with the report. To start reading, simply click here now for instant access.

Editor’s note: Video uses analyst expectations of $1.58, which should be $1.05 to adjust for the recent stock split. The Motley Fool regrets the error.

    DDD has made a lot of year-over-year successes however it does not mean the future is going to be bright for them.

    DDD needs to out maneuver the 1,000s of innovators in the 3d printing field/market. If they accomplish this feat over and over for the next 3 quarters I'm going to be a huge buyer.

    However at the current moment, the stock price is too high for it's "value".
