For those who have yearned to dabble in the hot new trend of 3D printing, but worried they might accidentally throw in a trigger and some bullets and wind up making a firearm can now rest easy. The Danish 3D-printing firm Create It REAL has got you covered.
The company, which sells 3D printer component parts and software, recently announced that it has come up with a firearm component detection algorithm that will give 3D printers the option to block any gun parts. The software compares each component a user is trying to print with a database of potential firearms parts, and shuts down the modeling software if it senses the user is trying to make a gun.
