    A lot has been made about the 3D printing of firearms. Whether you are for or against the rights to own and operate a gun, there is no denying that 3D printing has created a bit of problem for those interested in controlling the distribution and availability of these potential weapons. We’ve seen several versions of 3D printed firearms come about over the past couple of years, most notably the Liberator gun from Defense Distributed’s creator Cody Wilson. The great thing (or perhaps not so great… depending on which side of the political fence you stand on), is that 3D...

    The 3D-printed gun that Cody Wilson calls the "Liberator." Eight months ago, Cody Wilson set out to create the worlds first entirely 3D-printable handgun. Now he has. Early next week [the] founder of the non-profit group Defense Distributed, plans to release the 3D-printable CAD files for a gun he calls the Liberator, All sixteen pieces of the Liberator prototype were printed in ABS plastic, [except] a single nail thats used as a firing pin.

    (CBS) Doctors and engineers have joined forces to bring the world its first lower jaw transplant, using a prosthetic jaw made by a 3D printer. An 83-year-old Belgian woman underwent the operation last June, after suffering from an infection that rapidly ate away her jaw. In order to keep breathing, chewing, talking and feeling in her jaw, the patient had no option other than the complete removal of her mandible (lower jaw). Scientists at the University of Hasselt BIOMED Research Institute in Belgium developed a custom made implant using 3D printing of titanium powder. The design, processing and production of...
