... A 3D printed gun is nothing more than a novelty. ...
This. When/if powdered metal molding comes to the garage hobbyist market maybe we can talk. Until then you're printing gun shaped plastic paper weights. I suppose you could print your very own blue guns too. Meanwhile I have not a care to spare about 3d printed guns.

Thank you for the info. :tiphat:
Here's a guy who built his 3d printer for ~$135.


FWIW the part source CD/DVD drives are available <$10 online so even if you have to buy new it isn't an impediment.

All the electronics are ~$25/free delivery: https://us.banggood.com/Wholesale-Wareh ... 28QAvD_BwE

The extruder and hot end ~$50.

That leaves $50 for aluminum & hardware.

wOOt!

Computer, 3D printer, material and program would cost 1000’s. Buying a gun off the street thats serial number has been filed off is less than $100.
What do you think criminals will use :confused5
Actually you can get this done for 100's not 1000's but point taken.
Computer, 3D printer, SOFTWARE, and material (including all the errors) for 100’s? I think not good man! :lol:
Pretty much any modern computer can run Fusion 360 which is free for non-commercial use and there are plenty of open source slicers. Filament is $10-$35 a roll for most materials and a roll should yield several receivers. A quick scan of craigslist reveals 3d printers up to the task starting in the $400 range. If we're diligent I think we could be printing ghost guns for $5-$600. Why, I don't know but you could do it. Plus, hood rats aren't burdened with the stigma of having to pay for things. They just take what they need from someone with the ability to pay for it.
