A 3D printed gun involves using the 3D printer to make a gun out of thin air. This is making an object after it has been designed with a Computer Aided Design, which is abbreviated CAD. A 3D modeling will also contribute to having a digital file ready for the 3D printer to make the firearm.
3D printing technology has incredibly advanced to the level that it is capable of printing a working firearm. This has been verified by the media, and even a US based company have already used 3D printer to print a gun that surprisingly work after being created.
A 3D printed (created) gun is not completely dependent on the printer though, because one of the main key lies in how the 3D object was digitally created. This is something that starts with virtually designing the gun, then determine how it would work, and make sure that the gun works after it has been made.
The 3D printed firearms will also include having different kind of firearms that range from a small gun to a 3D designed AR-15 that is printable and the object will also have a 30 round M16 magazine. A 3D printing gun is a perfect toy that can be made directly from home.
Gun Plans are available on the network. Anyone who has 3D printer can print today a set of parts which then makes a gun.
It is a very problematic issue when it comes to ensuring the protection of different people, or even in the event of severance airport. Printed guns are simply undetectable by metal detectors, but the ease of access to 3D printers and plans weapons may in the future lead to tragedy.
