Shooting a 3D Printed Gun

Shooting a 3D Printed Gun



I'm dr. Norton I'm flying into Tucson Arizona to give the keynote the additive manufacturing users group these are the best of the best of 3d printing so you better believe I have my camera with me but with my travel schedule these guys are known as friendly sitting here with cold chicken noodle soup all these business cards all the people I just met this guy check this out that's his card made a 3d printed gun and shot a hole in his card I'm gonna go shoot the gun tomorrow I enjoy guns I enjoy the all the stuff that goes into making them work because it's it's a little machine it you know it takes a spark to take fuel it takes a little bit of air the miniature explosions that happen much like an engine being a ninja man there's thousands of little explosions that go on it's that's cool stop he just started doing it in the company without anyone knowing now it's turned into a big head and everyone loves them look it go wrong you're just printing a gun it wasn't to produce a better or cheaper 1911 its sole purpose was to prove the process for someone else's design not ours I mean that's John Browning's design that designs a hundred years old take his design and bring it into manufacturing today I think John Browning would a prototype this way all right we're gonna test this thing yeah let's go to the range we're in the service yes I was in the Navy did four years so I went to school to to fix diesel engines they're really big on cross-training so the other trainings that I went for were the the master-at-arms training which got me pretty heavily into the firearms it fix an engine put out a fire and then go shoot the bad guy now this gun was not made with your everyday 3d printer this was made with a half million dollar direct metal laser sintering system with DMLs objects are made layer by layer using a laser to center a metal powder together sintering is a process where many small particles are turned into one large particle or a solid in this case laser is used to heat up the particles giving the atoms enough mobility so that they can rearrange and then form one large particle or a solid it's pretty cool it feels like such an accomplishment to hit 100 round intervals with this thing I'll let dr. North put the the round 4500 through the 3d printed 1911 all right no pressure man – oh that's impressive it's it's exciting to me I get off I get wrapped up and when you could start to combine technology and really advance ways of doing things with kind of these old things that have been around for a long time plus that's a 45 caliber pistol yeah it's quite a pretty potent on the hand yeah yellow mark dude love mark it's kind of like a hickey 45 guns and 3d printing what do you think let us know in the comments and make sure and click subscribe so you don't miss the next big thing in the making

    Because of Trump the economy grows so fast, this 3-D printer will be affordable for a three-year-old in a few months.

    You barely even showed off the gun. I assume that the gun that we saw for the entire video was the gun but you never actually told us that didn't show us anyting or explain any of the parts that weren't 3D printed anyways thanks I guess

    Amazing 😉
    It’s about using innovative solutions to keeping the country free.
    Firearms weather certain people like it or not, was what granted our freedom from a treasonous government. You have the freedoms you have based on patriots fighting and the “gun” like it or not.
    I think this technology is amazing 👍

    I think that if John Browning were around today he would make some absolute wonders with modern CNC and 3D printing. It's great to have this technology come into the firearms world.

    Look every constitution has a sort of "Arms Act" in every country. To possess a gun, either you have to be a security official like a policeman or military man? Otherwise own a fire licence which has a number shared with the government revealing your identity and motive of owning the arm. Apart from these, if you say print guns or bullets, then that is unconstitutional & thus a crime. Like say printing money? Why don't you guyz give illegal fantasies up? You can print unique accessories. Like sunglasses, watches, customised vehicles, musical instruments, sculptures, gift items, lamp shades, crockery items, photoframes, that goes on. But why guns?

    Printers are great for prototyping but can’t compete with modern and conventional processes.

    It’s illegal to 3D print gun parts because people can use them to kill people. Metal detectors don’t detect plastic.
