Well the 3d printer market is moving fast as imagined, we’ve apparently upgraded from plastics to metals quite easily, check out this awesome design by Solid Concepts. When it comes to technology, we are truly on the cutting edge. First the liberator, now this.
World’s First 3D Printed Metal Gun
“The whole concept of using a laser sintering process to 3D Print a metal gun revolves around proving the reliability, accuracy and usability of 3D Metal Printing as functional prototypes and end use products,” says Solid Concepts’ Vice President of Additive Manufacturing Kent Firestone. “It’s a common misconception that laser sintering isn’t accurate or strong enough, and we’re working to change people’s perspective.”
