3D Systems Corporation Rocks World at Euromold 2013 with 6 New Printers

3D printing behemoth 3D Systems  (NYSE: DDD  ) made a huge announcement on Tuesday at Euromold 2013 -- the Super Bowl of trade shows for 3D printing. To trump its rivals' reveals at this year's show, 3D Systems went for the shock-and-awe approach, by debuting not one, not two, but six new 3D printers.

Do black turtlenecks and 3D printers equal good news?

The video above highlights the entire presentation, but the juicy details center around these six new 3D Systems printers:

  • Projet 1200
  • ProX 950
  • ProX 500
  • ProX 100
  • ProX 200
  • ProX 300

Investors should note that the last three are actually rebranded Phenix printers; 3D Systems purchased Phenix earlier this year for its laser sintering direct metal line of printers. But don't let that temper the excitement around this product launch. The first three printers appear to be a great addition to the company's current lineup.

When looking at these new printers, investors should note their increases in print speeds, user-friendliness, and cost. 3D Systems needs to keep improving these factors to remain competitive, and at first glance, it appears the company has fulfilled this goal across its hardware and software lines.

Final Takeaway
These new launches closely follow the release of 3D Systems' Sense and Capture scanners, and the announcement of its partnership with Google on Project Ara. These reveals and more have made this a wild and crazy 2013 for 3D Systems, and Euromold is the perfect ending for what looks to be a record year at the company.

In the video below, Motley Fool analyst Blake Bos breaks down the new printers and gives his thoughts on the new product launches.

    The 33 minute video of the CEO introducing the new products at Euromold 13 is an ABSOLUTE MUST SEE. His explanations really clarify the disruptive nature of this 3D 2.0 technology. It is multifaceted innovation with productivity and ease of use blended into improved material handling and print speeds. This is serious commercial/industrial stuff; not just plastic trinkets and hobby level tinkering.
