Stratasys Ltd (NASDAQ:SSYS) said Thursday that it finished 2018 with record cash flow from operations.

The 3D printer company said it generated $18.7 million in cash from operations during the quarter and a record $63.7 million for the full year.

“We continue to build a strong operational foundation for future growth opportunities and to invest in accelerating new product introductions to expand our addressable markets,” Interim CEO Elchanan “Elan” Jaglom said in a statement.

Highlights for the Minneapolis- and Rehovot, Israel-based company include “positive traction” related to its PolyJet and FDM technology platforms, primarily in North America. That progress was offset partially by the impact of the US government shutdown and weakness in the European automotive industry, according to the company.

Stratasys reported fourth-quarter net income of $0.21 per share on revenue of $177.1 million, compared with $179.3 million a year earlier. For 2019, the company projected revenue of $670 million to $700 million and net income of $0.55 to $0.70 per diluted share. 

Shares of Stratasys fell $3.31 to $23.35 in Thursday’s early-afternoon Nasdaq trading.
