Lies about 3D printing guns
daveca   5/8/2013 9:33:51 PM
Speaking of lies that wont die, Lauren, why are you spreading lies about 3-D printing of guns?

 

Clearly you have neither engineering or firearms experience.

 

NO ONE will print a fully functioning real firearm with any process.

 

NO ONE can print a working barrel to withstand tens of thousands of PSI.

 

NO ONE.

Who has a 3=D printer that can:

1. Print 4xxx or 5xxx steel?

2.) print it into a HOMOGENEOUS mass? (that ones laughable)

3.) print it with the rifling, precision straightening, crown and chambering?

 

Again, OUTRIGHT LIES

 

This hysterical nonsense has grown from media hype to a full blown conspiracy theory wiht the aid of irresponsible Blogging like yours.

Its also deliberately misleading to claim these are "3-D processes" They are 2-D. Same as the so called 3-D CAD systems, there is no such thing, they are 2-D rendered images with tricks like shading to render a quasi 3-D looking image.

:-) the mind boggles. Personally I'm sceptical of the comfort of printed clothing having used 3D printing for many things. I reckon nothing gets past cotton or silk. Actually one could say that rayon fabric is 3D printed, although not in the usual fashion. Even it isn't comfortable and that's a true fabric.

The n12 bikini "material" looks useful. I would like a coat made out of it. Like modern day chainmail.

The 3D printed jaw is the true victory for 3D printing.

Excellent post Lauren.  This technology is not a fad and the companies providing equipment; i.e. printers, materials, finishing products, etc will be around for a long time.  The slide show that Lauren has provided represents the "tip of the iceberg" relative to items that can be manufactured.  As I have mentioned before, I feel future advancement will be determined by materials available for "additative manufacturing", improving speed in printing and the size of equipment that can handle large components.  It's a technology that will be with us from here on out.

I don't think that the people that monitor these comments are going to appreciate it, if I get any more graphic in order to explain the comedic tension that exists between showing a woman's empty brassiere and the headline "The Best Things to Come Out of a 3D Printer," so I'm going to leave it here.

Somehow, I get the feeling that you and I do not share the same sense of irony.

I believe that it is only a beginning Quacker, and I'am sure that there will be more things in the future like these.

Back in the very early 1990's I saw a plastic part produced using the photo-hardening process with some clear plastic liquid. This machine was being touted by the Detroit Center Tool company, DCT, which eventually failed due to managenet integrity problems. But I remember that the part was quite fragile but very intricate.
