Michael Hanson's curator insight, May 14, 2014 5:59 PM

This article is about how 3D printing has a lot of artistic capabilities, and how the manufacture of guns using 3D printing has placed a bad reputation on it. Because of this, public policy issues are occurring and some politicians are considering reforming laws concerning 3D printing.

Brian Bertram's comment, May 17, 2014 2:49 PM
I don't see anything wrong with a 3d printer either. It's benefits out way the problems. It could allow for more complex machine designs. It can also be used for learning inside the class room. If someone is determined to make a weapon, they can still do it without a 3d printer.
Buster Meyer's comment, May 18, 2014 12:29 AM
I think 3D printers are good but not to make guns if you were to make it, you should do it with your hands! It has a lot of benefits though!

Commercially available 3D printers have recently moved from being expensive hobbyist devices to being pricey but accessible consumer devices, selling in the $1,000-$2,000 range.

They have a huge assortment of "unavailable items"... so what?

 

Still 3D printers need some preorder, especially for the good price/performance ones. Mass production is still to be set up properly.
