Cool, its a 30 rd mag. The rifle isn't plastic, the only thing printed is the magazine. We won't be printing weapons out of plastic, promise. You couldn't have a polymer receiver and bolt group etc.

But the technology is not close to being ready. One thing is to print a gun. Another is to print one that actually fires. Another is to print one that fires again and not blows up in your face. All the 3d print materials, including those with metal fibers, are too brittle and break under usage. For now magazines are the only thing possible, no bullets and no guns.

Some nerds are saying these guys are risking the future of this tech for all of us, but the technology was bound to get into conflict with politicians anyhow. Next up is the content industry and copyright fears from new business areas that never had to worry about us copying them at home.

You may be able to print out some replacement parts for guns, but you can't print out an entire plastic gun and expect it to work. There's a reason the major parts of guns are made out of metal and not plastic. The first time you shot a printed gun it would blow up in your face. Clips on the other hand could be printed out. They wouldn't be as sturdy as one made out of metal but it would work, and when you can just print another one if it breaks I guess it isn't too big a deal. We might be able to print guns someday, but we've got a ways to go. They'll have to come up with some sort of material stronger than metal that can be molded into whatever is being made, and have a high enough heat and shock tolerance not to melt when being shot.

The reason they were saying "gun" was based on the photo of a plastic receiver.

Actually, fully functional automatic weapons can be made from 3d printers. The folks who came up with them were murdered, execution style.

I should add that there are all sorts of polymers that can be put in the printers.

Have anything to back that execution up? Are you talking about the FPS russia guy that was killed? Sorry but non metal essential parts will not work properly, and even if it would fire, different tolerances would get so out of whack you would be playing with a hand grenade. Sorry, but unless you are a gunsmith, armorer, or someone who has served in a combat capacity you are kind of talking out of your ass if you think a polymer firearm is conceivable. Polymer guns already exist, they are called toys.

I can't remember where I read the shooting bit, just that I thought "of course" when I read it.

Finding a source for the schematic files isn't hard if you look.

Don't forget what a polymer is. Kevlar is a polymer. Dragonscale armor is also a 'secret' polymer the maker's of it discovered/engineered.

Welding and boring are the soon-to-be past of manufacturing, for all sorts of things. Or, at least it would be, if we were allowed any degree of true freedom...
