Unlike the 3D printed Liberator , this 3D-printed part requires very little structural support and is simply used to guide the mechanism while firing. In other words, you can buy all the parts for a Ruger Charger (a .22-calibre rimfire semiautomatic that is essentially a Ruger 10/22 rifle in pistol form) online except the receiver. OFama is doing little novel here. Gunmakers wishing to exert their rights can buy 80% completed receivers online now and, with the help of a guide and a drill press, complete the parts at home. In fact, his two-piece receiver seems a little dangerous as it requires the user to print it in two pieces and then stick them together. He has not made the model available for download, either. In an anonymous-esque voiceover, OFama says: You may not condone the activity, but the fact remains that we are now living in a time when deadly weapons can be printed with the push of a button. The notion that any item so easily created could be eradicated from the earth is pure fantasy. The capacity to defend my family is a fundamental human right.

3DES VP of Operations, Rob Glassburn, P.E., explains, "This technology allows us to surface map and inspect internal passages of customer parts that require a non-destructive evaluation of their critical components. Markets from aerospace, medical, automotive and historical preservation can benefit from this advanced CT technology by utilizing 3DES services without the burden of expensive capital investments and maintaining engineers proficient in their use. 3DES will break down the paradigm that precision industrial scanning is expensive and time consuming. Our services will provide ISO 17025 quality combined with excellent turn around for our services utilizing 24/7 customer support. Valued at over $2 million, this 3DES project creates a state-of-the-art industrial CT scanning Center of Excellence. This strategic partnership with Nikon Metrology uniquely qualifies 3DES as the leading engineering and metrology lab in the United States, with its advanced suite of leading edge CT scanning hardware, advanced reconstruction and analysis software and team of degreed engineers professionally trained in all aspects of the use and proficient application of 3D voxel model data acquisition and point cloud engineering. Nikon Metrology VP of Strategic Marketing, Jim Clark explains, Industrial X-ray/CT has long been a tool used in the Quality and Failure Analysis lab, but advances in speed, techniques and standards mean that it is now a tool that can replace several pieces of existing measurement and metrology equipment and provide superior results both quicker and without the need to cut or destroy the part. "Nikon Metrology is excited to have partnered with 3D Engineering Solutions, notes Clark. 3DES is geographically well positioned in the Midwest to support the growing demand for advanced CT scanning services. Additionally it provides Nikon Metrology with a base for demonstrating and educating key customers and industries as to the benefits of industrial CT. With the rapid growth of additive manufacturing (3D printing) in the aerospace industry requiring jet engine manufacturers to better understand the critical nature of the internal passages of the components they are producing, Nikon and 3DESs new 450kV micro focus CT scanning system allows for significant improvements in inspecting critical components such as turbines, nozzles and blades. This new strategic partnership with 3DES and Nikon Metrology allows this niche industry of advanced CT scanning of critical aerospace components to be supported on a 24/7 basis that no other engineering services company is currently offering.
