This time, Max and I got to speak with 3D Systems’ CEO Jeff Graves. Graves has spent over 17 years in corporate leadership roles and now will helm 3D Systems into a new era. We really enjoyed talking to him as he explained the current state of 3D Systems and what it’s like to be at the company now. He also is open about divestitures, changing margins, future activities, and the focus of the firm.

3D Systems’ acquisitive past has meant that it became quite amorphous and Graves is trying to change this through focusing the firm on applications where reliability is key. He also hits at selling more units and making new investments. Graves talks about how to get customers and how the firm aims to expand. He also discusses how machines, software and materials are the key pillars of the firm, crucially excluding services. He mentions some new initiatives and some future plans, as well. We really liked this talk and found Graves to be engaging and clear in his plans for one of the largest companies in 3D printing.
