The mainstream media has latched on to the 3-D printing phenomenon and with that can come disillusionment. Talk of printing out your own shoes or a door knob at home may have caused the public and investors to have unclear views of companies like 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD), Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS), and Ex One (NASDAQ:XONE). In the video below, analysts Blake Bos and Isaac Pino talk about just how important consumer-focused 3-D printing is to the companies, and how investors should view them. Be sure to weigh in below if you think consumer-oriented printers are the key to the future of the companies.
