    yeah 3-dimentions is laughable, a real gun would have at least 5!

    3D Printing is going to be a huge industry in 15-20 years. Once it becomes affordable, there are so many applications it is mind-boggling.

    As long as people can mine resources out of the ground and manufacture weapons, guns cannot ever be outlawed or controlled by the State. They can only be heavily regulated in a libertine totalitarian society.

    Exactly, that is why AE Party policy is addressing additive manufacturing and the changes it will bring.

    I feel that 3-D printing, or something like it, will be one of the lynchpins in retaking our local economies and thus control our own lives. The only issue is IP law because it allows anyone with vast pools of capital to orchestrate ownership over the realm of human thought, ownership that necessitates brutal enforcement by the US government. This perception is owed to the roman empire and it's legacy of Dominium mundi through which men have laid claims of ludicrous sovereignty over shapes, human behaviors, and the very rain that falls from the sky.

    Additive manufacturing is going to result in a new kind of copyright laws having to be created. Also since you seem to have predictive insight on this specific subject, could you assist in AE Party policy please?

    I will, in fact I'm way ahead of you. Two of my neighbors are studying intellectual property law and they love to chat with me. I'm drawing up a definition of art, and a definition of definitions that this necessitates, that possesses specific political conclusions. We all know that IP law is bullshit but it is not enough to merely criticizes it, there must be alternatives (plural) that can go along with it or it is hollow. Though satire is a powerful tool, it can only destroy and reveal; it is incapable of building. It has no POV but rather feeds on the flaws of the views of others. I have been thinking for a long time on this subject and one of the reasons I am here is because, aside from my sentimental attachment to AE, I agree with this site in terms of politics, society, and personal responsibility so strongly that I started posting here. In fact why I am posting those excerpts all around is that I intend to reference them in proposing a Utopia of Discourse.
    The real question we need to be asking is "What is the most efficient way in which we can devote society's resources, naturally and without coercion, to provide the individuals that both tend to and yield the fruits of culture the leisure they need to practice their craft?"

    How the fuck is a gun made from plastic supposed to work anyway?
    It'll most likely just blow up in your face.

    Exactly, this is retarded. A plastic ABS gun can't work.This is the truest form of making a mountain out of a molehill.

    A plastic gun might fire successfully once before it takes your fingers off. This is a fucking awful idea.

    I guess a plastic gun could "work" if you had some incredibly strong heat resistant polymer that dissipates heat well. I think you would be better off printing things like high capacity magazines and shit. But think about it, if this printing did work, it would be like playing Borderlands all the time. People would make all kinds of crazy shit.

    This is interesting.

    I checked it a bit, and the answer is no...at least for the moment

    The problem isn't the heat resistance, is the pressures. They start at 18.000 psi and can go as fas as 65.000 psi in the chamber with some rounds.

    Pressure resistance + heat resistance + accuracy = no way

    Just ultra-strong plastics/composites/fibers are expensive as fuck...throw in the heat resistance and accuracy issues and you'll get a ridiculously high price, and that when the tech developes, cause at the moment it simply doesn't exist.

    There's a lot of bullshit out there on the issue, like this (see the comments)

    At WK I found a pic of a seemingly carbon fiber barrel...but it turned out BS too, when checked...the carbon fiber is used as a weight-reduction sleeve for the metal barrel

    An interest ( and lulzy) link about the subject, here

    I love to dig info, lol

    Isn't part of the problem due to how rigid the parts need to be? What I mean is, in order to maintain accuracy, I doubt you'd want the the parts to bend under stress. If you allowed this flexibility in guns, I'm sure someone could make it with plastics.

    I almost want to think you would have to redesign a bullet to work with plastic guns.

    If you really want to learn how to make firearms under the government's nose, there are ways. My father has a friend with a mechanized metal casting system that sounds somewhat like this 3d system. Basically it takes the machinist out of the machining. He uses it for fabricating classic car parts that don't exist anymore. My first thought was firearms when I heard about a computerized machine that could scan in a design and replicate the product.

    All you need are the dimensions for a popular firearm platform and all of its parts, and you're in business minus grip material and polymer parts. In other words, you could make a 1911 no problem.

    I dunno...CNC machines, being them laser or drills, are subjected to limitations about the concavity of the pieces they can do...I doubt very much that you can machine a barrel with one of those

    even if you could machine a barrel, what about rifling it? I mean there are workarounds but pre-rifled bullets are by no means a perfect solution- minie ball shot anyone? although I don't deny I'd love to see a pistol firing shotgun slugs.

    either that or a semi-auto pistol that fires those .410 shot shells
