I think Stratasys is looking to the future of where the tech is headed and capitalizing on current trends in 3D printing and CAD software, which I think is a great move.

I am really happy to see how fast 3D printing is being developed. Combining Stratasys, Solid Concepts and Harvest Technologies will result in massive production of useful equipment. As application areas of Solid Concepts include medical devices and equipment, they could further extend their resources to even build human organs. We can dream, can't we?
