Printer revenue decreased 17.2 percent compared to the third quarter of the prior year, driven by timing of large enterprise customer orders and the softer macro industrial environment.

On demand services decreased 12.0 percent and software increased 0.1 percent compared to the prior year.
"Despite continued headwinds in the industry, we achieved modest growth in Materials and Healthcare this quarter, driven by customer demand for our core and new product solutions," commented Vyomesh Joshi ("VJ"), president and chief executive officer, 3D Systems. "We remain focused on cost reductions, cash generation and profitability in the near-term and driving long-term growth with the opportunities we have in our product portfolio and target markets."
The company reported GAAP gross profit margin of 43.3 percent for the third quarter of 2019 compared to 47.3 percent in the third quarter of 2018. Non-GAAP gross profit margin was 44.4 percent in the third quarter of 2019 compared to 47.4 percent in the third quarter of the prior year.

The company generated $6.5 million of cash from operations during the quarter and had $127.6 million of unrestricted cash on hand at September 30, 2019. Cash generation during the third quarter was driven by improvements in working capital, including planned reductions of inventory.
