QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunA friend of mine has access to a 3d printer, she bought it at work for making maquettes of buildings.She's making all kind of cool stuff now, she made a geometric ring for a girl etc. The quality is really good, and the costs are very low (5ct for a ring). The only issue is time. It takes 10 minutes to print ring.is she going to try to print a gun ?

The only issue is time. It takes 10 minutes to print ring.is she going to try to print a gun ?Gun printing is solely done by the gun industry to try and trigger new law that empowers them more and defuses disruptive technology. It's the power struggle of behemoths against evolution.The gun printing thing is over hyped for what the direct implications are. If you need a gun, then are you going to spend 8000 USD on the printer, the 1000 USD on a printer + I don't know how much in plastic. The pistol that you get out the other end is non reliable. In the US you can pick up a far better alternative for around 500 USD tops. Slightly different in countries where the guns laws are little more restrictive, but I am sure the criminal underworld could easily get hold of one.
