Information is free. It's about freedom, bitches.
Oh yeah, that's what I got from this too. Defense Distributed. Great name for a group whose interests lie with the people. Whatever.
This shit's concerned me for years now.
Personally I support Stratasys Inc's move here.
too bad we can't print love
The "You wouldn't download a car?" is coming to reality soon.
So is 3D printing capable of moving parts then?
In other words - I don't believe that gun works. Yet.
The same people who defend the facebook page about the Australian case, will probably defend this fucking idiot as well. Freedom man they are taking our liberties away etc. and so on and so forth.
"Man dies in shootout while waiting for nozzle check to finish"
Oh, I thought this thread was about a new David Cronenberg film
Once you see past the curtain of fear, of people running around with guns, and the morals of defense and security. Which has been a running debate for too many years now.
You see that the powers that be are puppeteering people to act upon what you can or cannot print. If they can stop you from printing a gun, how much further will big businesses go to protect their investments?
Can someone print me some freedom and liberty?
omg prints a gun. Looks down barrel and fires in his face, he blinds himself in one eye.
A company printed a safety leaflet warning him to not look down the barrel of the gun but omg thought they were taking away his freedom and liberties and trying to control him so he looked down the barrel.
I think this probably the kind of thing that would need to happen to you, omg, for you to even have a modicum of sense rattled into that thick skull of yours. I hope you do read safety leaflets etc. be safe out there and watch out for puddles as you could very well drown in them.
We are certainly entering a new mechanical age of reproduction.
There will come a day when a perfect copy of any object is possible.
Where will value come from?
Alot of what this is reminds me of 17th century france. when they banned buttons.
"Two of the most extreme examples of the suppression of innovation in France occurred shortly after the death of Colbert during the lengthy reign of Louis XIV. Button-making in France had been controlled by various guilds, depending on the material used, the most important part belonging to the cord and button makers' guild, who made cord buttons by hand. By the 1690s, tailors and dealers launched the innovation of weaving buttons from the material used in the garment. The outrage of the inefficient hand-button-makers brought the state leaping to their defense.
In the late 1690s, fines were imposed on the production, sale, and even the wearing of the new buttons, and the fines were continually increased. The local guild wardens even obtained the right to search people's houses and to arrest anyone in the street who wore the evil and illegal buttons. In a few years, however, the state and the hand-button-makers had to give up the fight, since everyone in France was using the new buttons."
But... but... can it print me a Cherry 2000?
I mean that would be proper useful.
A gun has to suffer massive forces though right? What's the medium used to print? Surely a printed gun will fall apart?
I remember reading an article (at dezeen or bldgblog, I thought, but Google isn't finding it) speculating that manufacturers will try to circumvent 3d printing by imprinting codes that will cause deformities when scanned. Furniture with tumours, that sort of thing.
That'll be interesting. Sofa's with cancer.
good thing rappers don't have 3d printers
