11 Amazing Ways People Are Using 3D Printers For Good, Not Guns

11 Amazing Ways People Are Using 3D Printers For Good, Not Guns | 3D Printing in Five Years Time | Scoop.it
Even though anyone willing to shell out $850,000 on a 3D metal printer can now produce fully functioning guns in the legal comfort of their own home, it's not time to cry foul on the emerging technology. A lot of other people are creating some amazingly innovative and non-lethal things that won't leave you wondering which 3D-printed guns can and can't be detected by metal detectors.
