I broke an engine hoist trying to get it into place.

Scary! Yeah, I keep my toes out of the way, using my engine hoist to move machinery around. My hoist has a pneumatic hose connection with a remote control trigger. Makes it safer to operate at a distance. These 3D printers mean no more mangled fingers.

Under what law?

The law of superior firepower.

Certainly not by any legitimate Constitutional authority.

I just want a 3-D printer for wax to make cores for lost-wax casting. Talk about cutting down the cycle time on design changes. Print a core, build the mold, cast, figure out what you did wrong, remelt the AL, rinse and repeat.

If you guys want to scare the hell out of the government:

1. Print a Liberator
2. Go to a McDonalds or place with free wifi, get an anonymous youtube account, u/l a video of you shooting it
3. ???
4. PROFIT!

I recall an account of POW’s in a Japanese prison who built a lathe out of a piston and some other scrap they scrounged. Had to take it apart when they were moved. They occasionally made parts for the Japanese to trade for food and other necessities as well as parts for their own use. It had a swing of around 10 inches.

I see it on PB, but the enclosed drawing has Chinese captions (txt file is English). Anyone have any suggestions (short of learning chinese)?

The .jpg drawing is not of the CAD item as far as I can tell from screen shots, dunno what it is there for. Looks like a patent drawing.

No worries. Here is the response, for example, at the predominantly liberal Reddit.

Thanks. It’ll be fun to check out the guy’s work. Been a “CAD jockey” for years; since back when doing anything in 3D was just a total pipe dream. Today’s 3D modeling software just flat rocks.

How will this action increase the cost of 3D printing?

Well, if demand for 3d printers suddenly increases, then the components you have to source will go up. steppers and controllers, threaded rod, etc. Of course all of those are pretty cheap to manufacture.

I think the best one was the fellow who had RSA in 3 lines of Perl tattooed on his arm.

I've seen one of those in person and OCR'ed it for fun...

Ignore the enclosed Chinese stuff. It’s the .stl files (STereoLithography files) in the other folder you want.

Most CAD programs can read the .stl format.

Cheers!

We need a few of the 60,000 who have already download it, to take turns posting it.

You know, you could take the indivitual files, uuencode them and post them right here, if they weren't too large.

Or ascii encode them with PGP, which would probably be better and more apropos anyway.

The Boston Bombers used Gunpowder from Fireworks and Pressure Cookers made in China.

Prisoners locked up for 23 Hours a day in Solitary Confinement are caught with knives fashioned from any materials available to them.

Human Ingenuity knows no bounds.

Even with no shop experience, you can learn enough in about a month.
***With this 3d printing technology, you just have to learn how to load up a file and push a button.

From El Reg:

'Liberator': Proof that you CAN'T make a working gun in a 3D printer

It should be called the Darwin instead of the Liberator, because anyone using it would be up for a Darwin Award.

The story in the OP is also proof that a lot of people working at State are MORONS.
