What objects can you make with a 3D printer?

Among the items made with 3D printers are shoe designs, furniture, wax castings for making jewelry, tools, tripods, gift and novelty items, and toys.

Materials such as wood, cloth, paper and rocks cannot be 3D printed because they would burn before they can be melted and extruded through a nozzle.

Are 3D printers useless?

They’re made by supply chains. Tens, hundreds, sometimes even thousands of factories working together to gradually turn raw materials into something we would recognise as a product. This is why 3D printing in the home is useless – almost nothing you would want is made from a single material.

Is it illegal to 3D print a suppressor?

As long as you follow all local, state, and federal laws, then yes, 3D printed suppressors are legal. Whether you buy a suppressor from a dealer on a Form 4 or make one yourself on a Form 1, suppressors are all NFA-regulated items – including ones made with 3D printers.
