So far, 3D Systems has managed to stay ahead of Stratasys and ExOne. I don't think its going to be hard for sales to continue to grow over the next few years but the big question is how fast? 3D Systems shares have pulled back from their January highs of $47.99, any big surprise could send shares straight back up.
