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?
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.
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 .

tbh I'm doubtful Australia will get on board. I'm looking into 3D systems and Stratasys on the nyse
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!
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.
LAS VEGAS, NV, May 02, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- American Graphite Technologies Inc. ("AGIN" or the "Company") AGIN -9.02% and (berlin:A8G) (wkn:A1KBDQ/ISIN) announces that the Company has reached an agreement in principle with its collaboration partner, Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology ("KIPT", the "Institute"), in Ukraine on its project named "P600" which will be to research the properties of graphene contained matter as working material for 3-D printing.
The Company and the Institute will be working under the auspices of the Science & Technology Centre in Ukraine ("STCU"), which is an intergovernmental organization founded by the governments of the Ukraine, Canada, EU and the USA which supports research and development activities for peaceful applications by Ukrainian, Georgian, Uzbekistani, Azerbaijani, and Moldovan scientists and engineers.
