Timing to get in 3D printing



January 15, 2013 – Comments (9) | RELATED TICKERS: DDD

i ve just entered the 3D printing with an invest of 40% DASTY 30% DDD and 30% SSYS.

I followed D Gardner on that but guess the stock could retreat due to consolidation of market values.

Timing is allways hard. 3D will change the world like computer did, maybe more. Like for the steam machine, it will destroy lots of jobs at beginning. No need to buy costly spare parts if you can copycat them. I guess it can be quite disruptive.

 I knew about 3D printing 3 years ago but didn t follow up as I was busy on other things. I just saw now how fast the sector moved in terms of molecules they can use allready. When I saw titanium, I knew it s gonna be great, cause I know how costly parts of titanium can be.

Future of 3D printig is really huge. But we could see share price retreat more than 50% from here. I was to young and didn t get the money to invest in AAPL or MSFT in the 80's. Maybe is here a chance to pick the next MSFT on that sector.

I guess D Gardner has studied well those three and one of them can be a winner. But open source 3D is also a threat to them for end consumer, I think not for big companies.


Thanks to post your ideas.

 Good luck to all

Personally I am skeptical about 3-D.  With respect to movies I just hate wearing the glasses.  Same with TV and wonder what negative health effects could occur with long term regular usage.

I did invest in a 3D camera company decades ago. Problem was out of all the pictures I took only ONE looked sweet.

I agree. Great article. Awallejr, ahaha all I have to say is read up on DDD and 3d PRINTING. We are not talking about movies here.

I totaly think DDD is the next Apple. SSYS does not compair to DDD IMO. 3D Systems has better product design, pricing and over all buisness layout. BUY!

I am a fan of three D printing. I am an Electrical Engineer, and have sons that are  engineers and architects.  The stock may have pull backs but 50%?  Please follow up that kind of statement with some form of support.

I did see someone print up a plastic part for a gun the other day. The gun with the part was fired for 6 shots and then fell apart when the plastic cracked.

The problem with the 3D printing companies is that you can make a 3D printer with a 3D printer.  You sell one, and the guy you sold it to can make 100 more.

At comment #7:

but you could only make smaller ones with your existing printer. So that wouldn't make much sense...
