    i live in australia an we have seen tv reports of 3d printers and seen bad publicity about the use of them for making guns.I dont know much about them,the use ,the flaws, or basically how to use them.we have them for sale here from specialised dealers at high prices.
    can we have a section for them where people can discuss good and bad points or some reviews or more info on them.

    As far as I know, the 3D printers use a plastic, resin, or some such to form the completed item.

    From what I have read any gun made this way might actually fire once or twice before blowing up in your hand. NOT a pretty sight.

    If there are changes in printable medium that become more sturdy, the thoughts of undetectable weapons are also scary.
