ASX publicly listed 3D printing companies?

Whilst I know of a few companies listed on the NYSE, is there any local companies listed on the ASX that sell and/or manufacture 3D printers? Incidently, what are peoples thoughts on investing in local or overseas companies that specialise in 3D printers?

Re: ASX publicly listed 3D printing companies?

I also tried searching for an asx listed 3D printer company a few months ago but got nothing. Every search engine hit was either a US or Chinese listed company.

Thanks for posting


In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they're different.

Re: ASX publicly listed 3D printing companies?

Best news site I've found for 3D printing would have to be 3ders.org. According to their up to date list of available 3d printers, Australia is yet to join the ranks of countries developing this tech. http://www.3ders.org/pricecompare/3dprinters/

Personally I think this technology is going to go the way of the plain paper printer, in that it will sit in every home office of the first world. I've been reading a great free ebook on it http://sdu.ictp.it/3D/book.html

I think this tech has a massive future ahead of it, so now's the time to try and identify the Apple's & IBM's amongst the crown of fledgling developers.

Seriously considering getting one myself smile.

tbh I'm doubtful Australia will get on board. I'm looking into 3D systems and Stratasys on the nyse

Re: ASX publicly listed 3D printing companies?

I too believe 3D printing will be something in years to come!
I own a few DDD shares on NYSE
Wish an aussie business would jump on board!

Re: ASX publicly listed 3D printing companies?

Absolutely huge future but yeah how to get on board ?

SCIENCE fiction could become fact with scientists on the verge of creating human organs by reproducing a patient's own skin cells using a 3D printer.

3D printing uses machines to build body cells layer by layer from digital data.

Researchers from Melbourne's St Vincent's Hospital and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) in Wollongong are behind the medical breakthrough.

ACES director Professor Gordon Wallace said he believed it would be possible to manufacture living tissues like skin, cartilage, arteries and heart valves using cells and biomaterials within five years.

I ended up with a small speculative investment in 3D Medical ASX (3DM). Bought in at 0.05 - currently trading at 0.135 - still holding

Re: ASX publicly listed 3D printing companies?

The problem is that what 3d printing is hasn't been quite sorted yet. I don't think simple polymer printing of monolithic or simple interworking parts is going to be enough to get this technology to really get out there. I think you'll have to wait until you see a good implementation of printed circuitry and other electronic parts and end to end automated complex product production. At the moment I don't think you can point to a company and say that this is the company that will put it all together and will create the pc of 3d printing that will be ubiquitous. You could look for companies that have a good collection of IP that will give them a share in whatever the future of 3d printing is because they have a few basic patents but you'd want to be pretty sure what's going to be inherently necessary to the future of 3d printing and really it's a cousin to investing in a patent troll company, or perhaps more accurately like investing today in RIM or Nokia because you can't use a smartphone without touching their patents, not exactly a shining future.

I agree that this is a big part of the future but think about the state of gaming consoles between 2000 and 2010. Lots of enthusiasts getting excited by the new technologies and wanting to do something and ending up creating a huge amount of very exciting vaporware.

It's too hard to get funding for innovation in Australia. Most innovative companies/people end up going overseas.

Yet it's easy to get funding for real estate. But that's another story.

And, by God, I'm gonna do it."  - George Bush 2003
