The DMLS printing process fuses metal powder into a solid part by melting it locally using a powerful focused laser beam, an industrial 3D printing process used to make metal parts for the aerospace industry as well as some bespoke surgical implants.

Wow... I knew certain parts for a gun could be made out of plastics from 3D printers but this news is mind blowing. What would be awesome and absolutely insane is if in just a decade or so, homes will be equipped with 3D printers capable of producing stuff like metal guns, furniture even and more... which might lead to  a slow decline in capitalism and industrial specialisation.

My initial thoughts exactly.
Maybe, just maybe, someday we will all be able to generate our own energy and everything else we need at home, and be freed from the embezzling machine.

I have a feeling that will never happen, too much profit being made already.

Corporations won't stand to let that happen.

When new technology emerges, corporations have to adapt -- they can't just block it out. If large corporations could block technologies that render their services as obsolete from the public, we would probably still be in the 1900's.

Look what happened to the record industry when online music came into being. Did Tower records block the internet?

No one's getting free food either, as that would also be bad for business. But that's irrelevant.

Exactly. As much as they can try to suppress a technology it will break loose sooner or later.
Look at the fight big oil has waged against the electric car. Sure they did a good job of it, but I now see them on the road frequently.
It's still only a tiny sector of the market, but nevertheless it has broken loose.

What is really exciting about this printing tech vs. something like electric vehicles is that it may enable the consumer to have a means of production in their own home, decreasing dependence on the global (and centralized) economic machine. Just imagine the equipment you would need to make a firearm like this otherwise.
