The gun printed on the 3D printer withstood 500 shots

В продолжение news about how Solid Concepts printed the iconic M3 on a 1911D printer, a video with a strength test was presented to the public.


500 shots were fired from this pistol.

The gun was produced by the technology of laser sintering of metal with the subsequent removal of internal stresses. It is worth noting that 17-4 steel was not heat treated in order to prove that the printed gun would cope with its task without additional manipulations.

The grooves in the barrel, like other parts, were printed in layers 40 microns thick, and then hand-finished with ordinary tools. The only exceptions are the springs, as mentioned earlier, they had to be bought separately.

According to the ATF requirement, this gun has its own unique serial number.

During the test, the gun never failed. But even if something breaks in it, Solid Concepts will always be able to print a couple more details.

          My nerves are torn by strings!

          Aircraft carriers are not aircraft carriers, but sophisticated date mechanisms were quite real. The Chinese are very zealously developing this technology - why spend money on meticulous design, sample production, testing, etc. - It is easier to scan a finished, well-recommended product, and print the product.

        It’s just not clear why all this is necessaryNo.when there are so many weapons, the whole planet is already polluted by him, is it really impossible to collect something else that would not destroy, but build up, or yet humanity is no longer capable of anything but to bring down their own kind ... request

    This is not bullshit, but the development of technology. In some cases, when developing products, for example, this accelerates the pace of work tenfold.
    Resource in this case is not so important, mass production will then be based on traditional technologies, but then OCD is many times faster.

      Even for consumer goods, there are certain GOSTs and are tested in the manufacture of them.
      And if you consider that a couple of weeks ago on the site with enthusiasm the fact of carrying out 50 shots was highlighted, then Fuli should have added "0" for people. People ALL GASPES, squirming with delight.
      there is a method for testing CO, and no one has canceled it yet. And if the "unit" is intended to hammer in nails, then this is certainly a different matter. Without a sucker, life is bad.

        Dear, suppose YOU designed a gun to test it "in nature", you give it to the milling machine, taking into account the inevitable "mistakes" and improvements - how soon will you receive it ??? How much is it???
        3-D in metal is a breakthrough in OCD !!!
        Nobody has canceled traditional technologies, but for design bureaus of precision engineering, and other organizations associated with the development of non-standard equipment this is a godsend!
        Or let's say your wife has a broken part in the sewing machine, but let's not find this "paw" ... We build a 3-D model, go to the guys with a printer, and voila, you are a hero and a wizard-machine sews again !!! (example )

      In general, it seems to me that a revolution can happen in this area, and then many things that seemed to be science fiction before will turn out to be a reality.
      After all, imagine when a humanoid robot will be printed in quotes before your eyes, especially if the problem with the speed of printing is solved.

In the morning, he blew up the city administration to a hair dryer. laughing (joke) But in fact, the question is already in the nuances, if the technique has come to that. The only way to get enriched uranium? ))) Or will the printer himself be able to synthesize it from lighter chemical elements? laughing

It was first published in 1968, in the collection "Trap for people." Funny fantastic story from the cycle about Gregor and Arnold from “AAA-POPS” - the Astronautical anti-entropic agency for improving the environment.
      The Russian translation was published under the names "Configurator" (translated by A. Korzhenevsky), "Necessary thing" (translated by A. Ezhkov) and "Minimum necessary" (translated by V. Weber)

    Such a 3D printer costs as a pair of CNC turning and milling machines on which a similar gun can be easily turned.

    Printers printing their plastic are publicly available. But such machines are very expensive. Plus raw materials - the powder is much more expensive than a metal disc.
