First 3D printed metal gun

Is anyone familiar with this process? Does it start out as a power or pellets like the plastic 3D stuff? It didn't mention it in the article.

Re: First 3D printed metal gun

read the comments on their page. people ask why they made a gun because its a weapon, others wanted to buy it.

people will never agree on anything

Re: First 3D printed metal gun

3d printing is definitely the direction prototyping/production is going now. the latest i've heard about 3d printing metal is that it's enormously expensive and typically done at a large scale for complex steel joinery. powder (most antiquated of the processes) is a pain in the ass to clean/excavate/cure and is generally weak and thus unfit for this type of application. Plastics are stronger ("sls" for example. as he mentioned in the video for the grip is a typical plastic 3d printing process) but again cannot perform at the same level as steel. I'm curious how much it cost them to produce the gun in terms of total time of printing

On a related note, Philly is the first city to ban 3D printed guns. http://www.theverge.com/2013/11/24/5...d-printed-guns
