When I first started writing about 3D printing, most investors viewed it as a futuristic "gee-whiz" concept – and had no idea it was actually a "here-and-now" technology they could make money on.
And the mainstream news media didn't seem to know that this 3D technology even existed.
Today, as you know, many of the 3D stocks (including some that I've identified) have soared … and then fallen back to earth. Some pundits claim this was nothing but hype – or another tech bubble that now has burst.
Still others are writing this off as little more than a novelty niche.
Don't make that mistake.
With 3D printing, we're in the earliest stages of what's destined to become an entire new industry.
And, as I'm going to show you today, the profit potential is massive.
