What happens when an ordinary man 3D prints and assembles a gun, then takes it to the police department?

We have seen a lot of amazing applications for 3D printing, but there is one particular application that has overshadowed some of the more positive uses, and that is the 3D printing of firearms.  3D printed guns aren’t necessarily a bad thing, in the wrong hands they certainly can be. Unfortunately the media has picked up a couple rather innocent stories pertaining to such fabrication, and used them to portray the future of the technology as being part sinister.

Top 3 reasons why 3D printing will change the world

3D printing

3D printing will change the world.

Orwell’s prophetic year of Big Brother, 1984,  saw the release of the Mac which broke the idea that centralized control could ever be what it was before. The year 1984 also saw the first workable prototype for a 3D printer. Built by Charles Hull, the technology was then known as stereolithography. We know it as 3D printing, and that’s a term that covers a variety of different processes which may revolutionize all stages of the global manufacturing and distributing process.

Printeer is a $450 3D printer for kids.

Cheap 3D printers have been getting a bad rap. They are seen as toys for enthusiasts, most work by squeezing melted plastic filament through a thin nozzle (Fused Filament Fabrication, or FFF). But in reality, these devices are revolutionizing the world of product development. They are set to educate a generation and are home to some of the most innovative developments in the 3D printing world.

It’s amazing how quickly additive manufacturing technology has been progressing. Laser sintering of metals within the manufacturing industry was a process used by only a few companies, mostly in a research capacity, just a few years ago. Now numerous companies are using laser sintering additive manufacturing machines to print extremely important metal components for a variety of products, from airliners to race cars.

This fabric pen can magically mend torn clothing

Fabric Pen

The average American throws out around 70 pounds of clothing and other textiles like shoes and sheets every year. The problem is that clothes are so cheap that it’s easier to replace something than repair it if a piece happens to tear. Many of us no longer even know how to sew. One survey in the U.K. found that 7 in 10 young adults couldn’t even sew on a button, let alone make a more complicated repair.
