3D Technology Blueprints Banned in Australia

It didn’t take long before the 3D technology industry got into trouble. Who knew, but it probably was inevitable that someone would figure out how to make something dangerous out of a 3D printer.

The blueprint to make them will be bannable to  posses (have it stored on a computer), and there is no easy penalty for being caught with the blueprints it might give you as much as 14 years in jail.

As of  today 3D technology hasn’t really gone mainstream yet, it’s in the early adopters stage. The machine cost a small fortune around $1,2000 plus to get anything remotely good, and it isn’t really user friendly yet. Don’t get me wrong it’s not rocket science or anything, but it’s a little bit of a hassle.

However, the technology has endless of possibilities imagine being able to  make anything you want from home, make a table or a stand for your mobile phone, a pair of shoes, toys, and so forth. The possibilities are endless. The material could also be reused and turned into something else after you don’t need the thing anymore. I can imagine that there will be a large market for blueprints online.

But, with such a machine where even a gun, and probably several other dangerous weapons can be crafted from comes responsibility, and I’m sure we will see several changes to the law in the future, what will be allowed, and what will not.
