The US Will Allow 3D-Printed Gun Blueprints Next Month

Starting next month, US citizens will be legally allowed to find the blueprints for a gun online, download them onto a 3D-printer and then create that firearm from scratch.

These often plastic-based weapons are not registered which can make them virtually untraceable, often resulting in them being called ‘ghost guns’.

Unsurprisingly, the idea of lawfully allowing the public to do this has caused quite a fair amount of controversy. In fact the reason it’s being allowed at all is because of a lengthy court case involving the US Department of State. read more

3D-printed guns capable of firing found at Sunshine Coast home

3D-printed handguns capable of firing have been found during a police raid at a home on the Sunshine Coast.

False driver licences and credit cards, allegedly created using printers and scanners, along with a knuckleduster and drugs, were also seized in the search of the Mudjimba property.

Sean Patrick Murphy, 27, appeared via video link in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court today charged with 12 offences after officers carried out the raid on Wednesday morning.

Police alleged that the three guns were made in a 3D printer over the past two months and were capable of being fired. read more

Printrbot Shuts Down After Seven Years of Creating Open Source 3D Printers

Printrbot, the 3D printing manufacturer which was founded in 2011 with the launch of its original Printrbot printer on Kickstarter, has announced that it’s now sadly closing its doors.

If you’ve been following the story of Printrbot since its successful Kickstarter campaign in 2011, you’ll likely be sad to learn that the digital fabrication tool maker is closing its doors. We certainly are.

The company’s website simply states: “Printrbot is closed. Low sales led to hard decisions. We will be forever grateful to all the people we met and served over the years. Thank you all. Brook.” read more

Americans can legally download 3-D printed guns starting next month

Gun-rights activists have reached a settlement with the government that will allow them to post 3-D printable gun plans online starting August 1.

The settlement ends a multi-year legal battle that started when Cody Wilson, who describes himself as a post-left anarchist, posted plans for a 3-D printed handgun he called “The Liberator” in 2013. The single-shot pistol was made almost entirely out of of ABS plastic — the same stuff they make Lego bricks out of — that could be made on a 3-D printer. The only metal parts were the firing pin and a piece of metal included to comply with the Undetectable Firearms Act. The US State Department told Wilson and his non-profit group Defense Distributed to take down the plans. It said the plans could violate International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which regulate the export of defense materials, services and technical data.
