3D printers are only going to get better. With better printers, comes better products. Guns have already been established as a viable produce that
these printers can make. Therefore the guns produced are going to get better and better.
Do you think that when they develop to a certain level of strength/material use they will be restricted in sale?
It can make very difficult skilled construct - as easy as filling up the material, loading the program and hitting "start".
Obviously you can make a gun at home if you have the right tools, and materials but also a wide level of very precise skills. So while easily doable,
would take a very large amount of investment in time overall to achieve.
I can see 3D printers getting classifications based on the quality, strength and degree of accuracy to keep the printers capable of making working
safe guns and weapons in restricted and monitored hands.
Its going to be an interesting technology to watch evolve, since its changing so fast that its applications and limits arnt even full understood let
alone controlled. Unlike say, a hammer, or a wood saw etc
