I am deeply disappointed with the revenue decline that we experienced during the first quarter. A decline that impacted our entire operating results for the quarter Several independent events coincided during the period to counter the sequential progress we made in 2007. Revenue from our large-frame Rapid Manufacturing systems declined due to: Soft demand for end-user parts in the United States during the quarter; Slowed our ability to close sales for systems destined to parts manufacturers as they hesitated to invest in significant capacity additions during an uncertain economic period Reduced U.S. sales for the quarter to 38% of total revenue Sales of our large-frame systems suffered as a result of the highly publicized Tangible Express business failure. Some prospective large-frame buyers paused to evaluate the Tangible Express situation Others tried to acquire this equipment at deep discounts Marketplace Factors Shaping 1Q08 Results 13


Other Key Factors Shaping 1Q08 Results During the latter part of the first quarter, the company received several anonymous letters alleging wrongdoing by the company and certain members of its executive management. The Audit Committee of the Board promptly conducted a comprehensive investigation through independent outside counsel. The investigation concluded that all of these anonymous allegations were baseless and that there was no wrongdoing either by the company or its management. This investigation consumed considerable resources and time: Resulted in operational disruptions during the first quarter, including the company's sales process which ordinarily intensifies during the second half of each quarter It also added $0.6 million of investigative expenses to SG&A in the first quarter. 15

31 Progress Report Abe Reichental President & CEO


33 State of Business We believe and expect that: Independent events coincided during the period to counter the sequential progress that we made in 2007. Notwithstanding the uncertain current economic climate, we are well positioned to regain the lost ground from the first quarter 2008 in the coming quarters. Our growing installed base, coupled with the integration of our new systems with proprietary materials' cartridges, should improve the profitability of our business as revenue from materials continues to outpace the growth in systems. The stability of our revenue base should improve as consumables' sales rise as a percentage of the product mix relative to systems. Stronger balance sheet enhances our financial strength and flexibility. We continue to transform our company and the way we do business to achieve a strong record of sustained growth and profitability


35 Other Significant Developments During the first quarter of 2008 we: Began selective Shipments of the V-Flash(tm) Desktop Modeler. Opened the Japanese marketplace to our key Accura(r) materials, expanding our portfolio of proven, dependable Accura(r) materials in Japan. Launched two new professional, high-definition 3-D printers; The ProJet(tm) HD 3000 3-D Production System The ProJet(tm) DP 3000 3-D Dental Professional System Launched two direct metal laser sintering systems: The New Sinterstation(r) Pro DM100 SLM System The New Sinterstation(r) Pro DM250 SLM System We continue to transform our company and the way we do business to achieve a strong record of sustained growth and profitability


Leader Innovator Partner Builder 37 We commenced selected shipments to hearing aid and general purpose resellers and customers. We encountered several technical difficulties that have slowed this phase down We anticipate resuming hearing aid shipments in June and general-purpose unit shipments in July We anticipate continued managed phased rollout through the third quarter of 2008. Our internal delays are not indicative with marketplace demand for this product. Due to the relative low price per unit and managed rollout plan, we do not anticipate V-Flash(tm) Desktop Modeler to be a material revenue contributor during 2008. We expect V-Flash(tm) Desktop Modeler to negatively impact our systems' gross profit for the remainder of 2008. (tm) 37


Gross Profit Improvement Plan Profit Leakage Source Inefficient third-party logistics and warehousing. Material weaknesses related to inventory management. Inefficient parts return system inflating inventory and cost of goods. Premature failures of warranty parts supplied by third parties. Corrective Action Move activity in-house by August 2008. Integrate ERP module, move activity in-house. Streamline process, move activity in-house. Comprehensive re-engineering and resourcing. 39 Third-party logistics partner strategy did not deliver desired results; it caused the company significant profit leakage


Expected Target Operating Model Expected Target Operating Model $170 million $200 million Revenue in The Range of: Gross Profit SG&A R&D Operating Income Net Income after tax Depreciation & Amortization Capital Expenditures Materials Revenue New Products Revenue 55%-65% 41 46% 25% 8% 15% 10% 4% 2% 42% 55% 23% 7% 20% 15% 4% 2% 45%
