3D Printing - A Revolution

The World's first 3D printed gun.
Do you remember the Star Trek replicator?  That device that could just make things seemingly out of thin air?  It's here as 3D Printing and you can have one in your home.

Ok, you can't make food with it like on Star Trek, but you can make things to hunt with like guns, knives and cool stuff like that.

3D Printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model.  The printer creates objects by laying down successive layers of material.

There are websites to download 3D models that you can print and you can even get a device that will create a digital 3d model that can be printed later.

The 3D printer is used today in many industries to create prototypes and usable everyday oblects.

The picture on the left is some of the things you can make with a 3D printer.

Here is a website with downloadable 3d Objects, it is definitely worth a look!
