- Stratasys (SSYS -2.5%) and 3D Systems (DDD -2.5%) are trading lower today as analysts warn of threats to their business from HP's (HPQ +0.9%) Jet Fusion 3D printers, detailed yesterday.
- Pacific Crest's Weston Twigg says it's a "negative" for those two companies, but not a surprising one. The competitive shakeout could take years, but HP's technology "could be disruptive, and customers have shown a high desire to partner with HP on the development of the printer," Twigg writes.
- Similarly, Piper Jaffray's Troy Jensen sees a (not overwhelming) threat in price and speed from HP's new printers. Low HP pricing could shrink pipelines, but some of 3D Systems' and Stratasys' printers "are better in certain applications."
- Twigg also thinks HP's printers could mean "modest" positives for less direct competitor Proto Labs (PRLB +0.9%), focused on the commercial market, and HP partner Materialise (MTLS -0.7%).

- HP Inc.'s (HPQ +0.6%) first 3D printers will be known as the Jet Fusion 3D 4200 and 3200. As the company claimed in 2014, the industrial-class printers are said to print objects 10x as fast as current hardware. HP also claims they'll do so at half the cost, and - thanks to HP's proprietary Multi Jet Fusion inkjet printing process - give customers "an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customization."
- Initial partners for the printers include Nike, BMW, Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), contract manufacturer Jabil. CAD/CAM software firm Autodesk, industrial prototyping firm Proto Labs (PRLB +0.6%), and 3D printing software/services firm Materialise (MTLS +1%). Proto Labs will provide a product testing site for HP's printers, and Materialise's Magics 3D Print Suite will be compatible with them.
- J&J, meanwhile, will be collaborating with HP on using 3D printing to create personalize health care offerings. In the near-term, the companies will work on the "personalization of instrumentation and software for patient-specific healthcare devices."
- The 4200 will be delivered in late 2016, and the 3200 in 2017. Pricing for the 3200 starts at $130K (no word yet for the 4200). Long-term HP wants to offer 3D printers capable of embedding sensors and including "embedded information" such as invisible traces or codes.
- HP is hoping its entry into the growing 3D printing market will boost a printing unit that saw revenue drop 17% Y/Y in the January quarter to $4.64B. 3D Systems (DDD +3.2%) and Stratasys (SSYS +4.2%), two of the biggest players in the industrial 3D printing market, are trading higher. They sold off in 2014 when HP first unveiled Multi Jet Fusion.

- Having gone into earnings just $1.25 above a 52-week low of $51.61, Proto Labs (NYSE:PRLB) is soaring after issuing light Q1 guidance and in-line 2016 guidance to go with a Q4 beat.
- The industrial custom parts maker guided on its earnings call for Q1 revenue of $72M-$76M and EPS of $0.43-$0.48 vs. a consensus of $76M and $0.51. However, 2016 revenue is expected to be up 25%-30% Y/Y; consensus is for revenue to rise 26% to $333.8M.
Top-line performance: Q4 sales benefited from $5.1M in revenue produced by recently-acquired German 3D printing service provider Alphaform. Excluding Alphaform, Y/Y sales growth was 22.5% (25% exc. forex) rather than the official 32%. Injection molding revenue +23% Y/Y to $43.9M, CNC machining +19% to $19.6M; legacy 3D printing +69% to $6.6M, with Alphaform contributing another $2.5M.
U.S. revenue +21.6% to $53.9M; Europe +22.3% to $12.2M; Japan +45.9% to $2.6M. Unique product developers/engineers served rose 21% Y/Y to 12,414.
- Financials: Gross margin fell to 56% from 59.4% in Q3 and 59.9% a year ago - Alphaform hurt GM by 260 bps. GAAP operating expenses rose 31% Y/Y to $24.7M. Proto Labs ended Q4 with $145.6M in cash and no debt.
