OFama is doing little novel here. Gunmakers wishing to exert their rights can buy 80% completed receivers online now and, with the help of a guide and a drill press, complete the parts at home. In fact, his two-piece receiver seems a little dangerous as it requires the user to print it in two pieces and then stick them together. He has not made the model available for download, either. In an anonymous-esque voiceover, OFama says: You may not condone the activity, but the fact remains that we are now living in a time when deadly weapons can be printed with the push of a button. The notion that any item so easily created could be eradicated from the earth is pure fantasy. The capacity to defend my family is a fundamental human right. If you take my gun, I will simply print another one. I will condone this activity until Im blue in the face. But to make this sort of a thing a public issue full of posturing and puffery is wrong-headed. Any sensible person with some mechanical skill can build a receiver out of metal or plastic.

Done USPS: 3D printing could increase shipping revenue by hundreds of millions By Signe Brewster July 8, 2014 8:10 PM 0 shares Content preferences Done 3d printing is often named as a solution for minimizing shipments of little plastic trinkets halfway around the world. But the U.S. Postal Service thinks that people will continue to ship goods short distances, and 3D printing could boost package revenue by $323 to $646 million annually in the future. Graph courtesy of the US Postal Service Office of Inspector General. According to astudy published by the USPS Office of Inspector General: It is often not cost effective for private delivery firms to make separate stops to deliver small, relatively inexpensive packages particularly in rural areas. However, the Postal Service is already visiting these locations every day.
