We've discussed before the differences between a machine that builds printed circuit boards (PCBs) and a machine that can create 3D printed electronics. 3D printed electronics could be considered a new technology while building PCBs is something companies have been doing for decades. Here's what the competitive space looks like for printed electronics:
A company called Nano Dimension claims to be ahead of the pack, and was approved for a listing on the NASDAQ which for all practical purposes represents an IPO for U.S. based investors. We first wrote about Nano Dimension in November of 2015 when they announced pre-sales for their DragonFly 2020 3D Printer which can indeed print electronics in 3D.
Now bear in mind that this issue is a micro cap with just a $50 million capitalization at the moment. With the 3D printing market getting a serious nosebleed lately, this may be a 3D printing IPO that starts trading at a fair valuation unlike ExOne (NASDAQ:XONE) which is trading down -70
