Austin man at center of Printed guns, being investigated for sex assault charge.
Call me cynical but this seems awfully convenient. I'm not that computer literate, how hard would it be to fake an account and set someone up?

I suppose you could print your very own blue guns too.
That is actually what I am most excited about, lol! Getting some scale models so I can make 'blue gun' copies of my firearms for kyder holster making and training purposes.
A repository would be great if anybody has the link.

I think you got a few of your quotes messed up but I know what you are talking about.

Industrial ones are pricey but have a finer accuracy.

I wish I had the funds to have my own shop as I would have all kinds of fun toys like these.

As for a repository, check out https://grabcad.com/library Use those at your own risk because they are submitted by people tinkering not the companies themselves.

Re: 3 D Printed guns in the news

I have a 3D printer at work that uses plastic filament. I would consider it on the high end of that type of printer. A 3D printed gun is nothing more than a novelty. If one values their life, it would have to at the very least have a metal barrel. The media has the anti's worked up with the belief that anybody with a printer can make a plastic gun to get by metal detectors which is just not the case. I could see a 3D printed AR lower that with the proper reinforcement, be functional and last more than a few rounds. This would be a "ghost gun" but so are 80% lowers and I bet there are plans in the works to out law them as well.
