Thank you, Johannes, and good morning, everyone. Thanks for joining us today for our third quarter call. From a big picture point of view, we are executing well on our key goals of driving our technology into series production. Our sales funnel looks good, pretty impressive and our colleagues all around the world are working hard to turn these prospect into orders. Backlog for 3D printers reached a record level at the end of October with approximately EUR5.6 million and the fourth quarter looks like it could be even better than last year's fourth quarter. What is more important, this would mean we would become EBITDA positive for the quarter.
We are really proud of the progress we have made, launching new product and continuing to grow our business into new areas, which has been particularly exciting to see how research project turned into new products that can support critical demanding applications and address the challenges that are most important to our customers.
Please turn to Slide 4. This year we are celebrating our 20th anniversary and are looking back at the multitude of exciting projects. Remember, we basically started in a garage in Munich and fast-forward today, products made with our technology are flying in space and we are implementing with VJET X, an additive manufacturing solution for true mass production.
In our indirect parts segment, we address the need of our customers for production-ready solutions and start to commercialize high-performance products like VJET X. In
