3-D printing gives consumers the ability to design and print almost anything they can come up with. Sure, there are limitations, which is why we’ve said 3-D printer stocks haven’t really taken off yet. But the possibilities go far beyond designing custom action figures for your kids. People are experimenting with 3-D printing organic matter.
Imagine the future where world hunger is solved by “printing” meat. Or where your doctor can tell you, “Your heart is going to give out. We need to print you a new one.”
3-D printing stocks like 3D Systems (DDD), up 48% year-to-date, are still in their infancies. There’s plenty more to come.
