I've been hearing a lot about 3D printers for the last few years, and whenever I see one in action on TV - I'm always amazed.
Given that I don't have a huge amount of money to invest and I want to limit my exposure to individual stocks, I decided to locate some ETFs that have exposure to the 3D printing companies.
