Fantastic news for those of us wishing to maintain our right to defend ourselves with the tools of our choice.

I've a friend of mine looking to start the first printer station in the state. Good luck Dave, great idea and its a good way to save on shipping costs and distribution problems. Just think of how much this is going to change the world for the better. Products ranging from just about everything can and will eventually be printed on site instead of shipped. Saving the world billions in associated costs not to mention the CO2 that won't be released.

Its like the worlds first transporter, and what a great product to start with. No more worries about damaged freight, or thefts.

Love B

Let the freak out begin ;-)

Absolutely brilliant with this tecnique the world will turn into an absolute dawg eat dawg place.
$8.000 dollars any small gang could poney up that kind of money.
Next will be 3D printed rockets, or even better a dirty little A-bobmb.

Don't you love (tecnological)progress.

Not quite sure what all the excitement is about.

People have had home shops for a long time. Making parts in an additive process instead of a subtractive process (like machining or turning on a lathe) doesn't seem like a big deal.

well that didn't take long, Obummer administration tramples the constitution and demands that first 3D printer, the prints and all schematics be turned into the federal gubment immediately

I think we can safely say "the first one used to make a gun" is being confiscated. Along with the plans and other related stuff.

Ever hear of ITAR? The American regulations that say you can't export arms or arms technology to foreigners without permission? The fellers that released this broke the law. The rule of law is the rule of law, it doesn't change for paranoid gun nuts. If they were able to ensure only Americans could access the files, nothing would have happened.

As mentioned in the other thread on this topic..with 100,000 downloads before the file was removed it is now well and truly in the public domain, and no doubt there will be other gun designs published in the near future. I have to confess that this particular use of 3-D printing technology worries me, but despite the fact that I consider the actions of Defense Distributed dangerous and inconsiderate, I still have strong objections to the internet being policed in this way by any government.
