    What do you think about this?
    Good bad?
    Interested in your thoughts.

    Medical uses could be phenomenal.
    Print prosthetics at hope without red tape. Amazing for amputees.

    Print replacement parts for cars.
    Print your own cell case or cover.

    And yes.. even working guns.

    Same here.
    I may try to find a group to split the cost.

    What little I have heard/read about it is that the things that are printed are not going to last very long/how durable they are. I think it’s pretty damn cool that it can be done and one day when they have made it to where things that are printed are durable it’s going to blow the doors wide open on what you can do with it, plus once it’s out for a while the price will come down, I doubt it will come down enough anytime soon that one will be make it a common thing that a lot of people have in their home.

    I watched a video and saw a lower receiver for an AR-15 that was printed fire full auto I think 600 rounds and was still perfectly fine.
    Same for a printed AR-15 30 round mag.
    I am sure the printers and materials will improve as well.
