3D Systems (DDD) is acquiring Viztu Technologies, developer of the Hypr3D printing platform, for an undisclosed sum. Hypr3D allows users to create products with 3D printers through a combo of Web software and uploaded images and videos. The acquisition expands 3D Systems' services footprint, and allows it to better reach consumers still wary of the high cost of 3D printers. (PR)

    This has been a good investment, DDD & SSYS. This acquisition isn't all that big, but here's the burning question: Will these pure plays continue to grow or be absorbed by some larger company. If they can stand alone for a few more years, they will be well over $100- per share on there way to $200-.

     

    Why? Because of their investment in materials formation & the overall investment in software by many big & small companies. Also, as they drive the price down, they are making & they're growing, simultaneously, their total available market. I'm convinced that we will have to make up a law soon to rival Moore's Law.

    I agree I have been on DDD all year and I have to say what they can do is amazing. My concern is how long it will take joe public to adopt the technology into the home where it could be an amazing transformative tech assuming costs for base, printable materials remains accessable. I agree with the assessment of REDS10 that if they can hold off the big boys they can make a niche that may be disruptive and transformative.
