New Method For Tracing So Called “Untraceable” 3D Printed Firearms!

New Method For Tracing So Called

By: James Perez

Researchers have found a method to trace 3D printed firearms the on-going legal battle of the 21st century. This method uses the slight differences in the 3D printers’ hardware that make certain patterns in anything that a given 3D printer prints. This is the first reliable tracking system for 3D printed firearms.


This relates to engineering because it dives into how the 3D printers are engineered and how the hardware effects how the printers print anything. The guns that are being 3D printed have been engineered as well through software and then uploaded to the internet.
