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.

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.
