3D Printed Airsoft Gun Created By Engineer

3D Printed Airsoft Gun Created By Engineer | 3D_Materials journal | Scoop.it

Guns.” The very word makes some people cringe, and crawl into a cave, while it makes others spring up with enthusiasm. The process of 3D printing a gun, does the same thing, only at a much more intense level. We have seen our share of 3D printed guns already, made of both metals and plastics.  In the meantime, probably the most intense debate around 3D printing has been taking place around the 3D printing of these often lethal weapons.

Nanotechnology is getting closer to 3D nanoprinting

Nanotechnology is getting closer to 3D nanoprinting | 3D_Materials journal | Scoop.it
Fabrication of three-dimensional (3D) objects through direct deposition of functional materials - also called additive manufacturing - has been a subject of intense study in the area of macroscale manufacturing for several decades. These 3D printing techniques are reaching a stage where desired products and structures can be made independent of the complexity of their shapes. Researchers in Korea have now shown that nanoscale 3D objects such as free-standing nanowalls can by constructed by an additive manufacturing scheme.
