Engineers at a custom manufacturing company in Texas have created world's first high-powered, fully functioning metal handgun... from a 3D printer. The team at Solid Concepts announced this week that that they've successfully designed, printed, assembled and (accurately) fired a 1911 pistol created using digital blueprints that were fed through an industrial 3D printer loaded with powdered metals.
