The government tried to stop it, but the Liberator lives on in the invisible vastness of the internet. And it’s growing up.
3D Printer Stocks and Investing
Several companies which make 3D printers and 3D modeling software are publicly traded companies. The beauty of investing in 3D printer stocks now is that most of the world has yet to know what 3D printing is, let alone understand the future of this world-changing technology.
3D printer leaders like 3D Systems Technology (DDD) and Stratasys. Inc. (SSYS) are trade on the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq, respectively. Two new smaller companies just recently went public: Arcam AB (AMAVF) and ExOne (XONE). Organovo (ONVO) is a pioneer in the 3D bioprinter area.
Some 3D modeling software (CAD) companies that allows the creation of the digital files that serve as input for the 3D printers, are also public. For example, the biggest player is AutoDesk (ADSK); another player, the creator of the massively popular Solidworks software, is a product of a public company in France named Dassault Systèmes, that you can buy on the Nasdaq (DASTY).
