Stratasys (SSYS -5%) and 3D Systems (DDD -3.7%) could be two more victims of Autodesk's Q2 report. Product designers often use the companies' expensive 3D printers in tandem with Autodesk's CAD software. (more on ADSK)

    Unlikely to be a drag for more than a few trading sessions. A buy anywhere below 64 is good for 50% in 12 months.

    seems like a non-event for DDD...their real story is bring 3D to the masses a la Gilette model...

    I have already profited so much from DDD and SYSS that I am in for the long haul with profits only. I think we are really in the infancy of these stocks but they are probably way overbought at this time.

    Baum: I concur. I am also long SYSS. Bought it at $50. I feel that 3D


    printing is on the ground floor . I feel it will be the next big thing since


    color TV. I intend to hold for the LONG term [5-10yrs].

    Buy the dips, folks. A revolutionary new technology is not less valuable in the long run just because Autodesk is doing poorly right now. DDD and SSYS do not care whose CAD program wins out.

    You are all quite correct. The very idea that a given product, may virtually be delivered and materialize right before your eye's, is just beginning to seed itself in the "big money".
    It most certainly has incredible disruptive potential, it's almost a "Tech Boom" in it's own right.

    Big future but they need to find out how/why everybody needs 3D printing in their daily lives. That is were the non-business volumes can come from, integration into daily routines (Apple, Starbucks, etc). If it stays a gimmick they won't make it. I love this concept as well as the medical application (ONVO), it has long potential.
