How Does 3D Printing / Rapid Prototyping Work?

Posted on June 11th, 2013 by bud

Creating a solid object from a 3D ┬áCAD model has become extremely easy. There are many ways of doing it, but essentially they all follow the same process: 1.The 3D CAD model of the object is “sliced” into many thin layers and fed to the 3D printer. 2.The 3D printer (through various different methods) prints […]

A gun completely made using a 3D printing!?

Posted on June 10th, 2013 by bud

Apart from the firing pin and the bullet, this gun has completely been made using a 3D printer. The “liberator” (pretty apt for the anarchist group!), created by Cody Wilson, is entirely undetectable by metal detectors and the plans were released online for free last week. ┬áNaturally New York Senator Chuck Schumer is introducing plans […]
