Just wanted to make a post for ENGINEERING discussion of this fully printed firearm released by DefDist. (No politics/morality)
So - It’s quite obvious now that he has done it. The videos are proof enough, and I have the files and have inspected them carefully.
It’s obviously not going to take large amounts of rapid fire usage. However this is printed in ABS using FDM. Some articles mention acetone vapour smoothing and the heated chamber of the stratasys machine contributing to extra strength.
I have a bunch of Polycarbonate here. I am curious as to how that would perform. Better strength, better heat resistance.
From an engineering standpoint this is a really interesting challenge. I would have a go myself, but am legally hamstrung due to the laws of my country.
