Quote:Solid Concepts has successfully produced what it claims to be the world’s first 3D printed metal gun.


And unlike the Liberator before it, this one looks a whole lot closer to the traditional firearms you're used to seeing.

According to its creators, the metal gun functions without issue and has already fired off over 50 rounds.

Building it involved the process of laser sintering — which helped them manufacture over 30 individual components for the gun — and various powdered metals. The point of all of this, Solid Concepts says, is to provide yet more evidence of 3D printing's potential; that the technology of far more than making "trinkets and Yoda heads."
