Why Are Shares Of 3D Systems Up?
Shares of 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) are moving higher after the company announced that its iSense 3D scanner is available for pre-order.

The big change in technology is that users do not have to put the object in a box -- they attach the iSense to an iPad and walk around the object. According to the press release, 3D system’s product can operate with objects as small as a shoe or as large as a car.
Shares of 3D Systems are up 3.46 to $57.37. Since initially announced on January 7, shares of the company are down almost 40 percent.
