  15. 15. Takeaway: Consumer Utility Still Lacking • 3D Systems had two major objectives at CES: • Showcase new products for professional and “prosumer” 3-D printing market. • Advance the consumerism of 3-D printing with products and services like the Cube 3, 3DMe, Cubify 2.0, and the iSense 3-D scanner. • End result: mixed bag • Compelling new 3-D printing products for “prosumer” and professional market announced. • Unclear why everyday consumers would want or need a 3-D printer in their lives. • At the end of the day, Cube 3 makes it easier to print cheap plastic objects, which isn’t necessarily a new idea for consumer-oriented 3-D printers. •All is not lost! • Around 90% of 3D Systems’ revenue still comes from the professional market. • If the rise of 3-D printing doesn’t take the masses by storm, 3D Systems remains well-insulated from this risk. • Alternatively, the biggest consumer use cases are families with children, educators, and DIY enthusiasts, which could support sales of consumer-oriented 3-D printers.
