Top Policing in Manchester

Makerbot Replicator 2 extruder alternative compared to 3D printed part found by Greater Manchester Police

Greater Manchester Police have issued a new statement following earlier claims that they had seized “component parts for what could be the UK’s first ever 3D gun” after the 3D-printing community pointed out they may be harmless printer upgrade parts.

“We cannot categorically say we have recovered the component parts for a 3D gun,” said the police, after Dezeen readers and technology websites raised doubts over the claims.

“I have worked with 3D-printers for several years, and I actually have that exact same printer, that’s why I recognised the parts,” said Dezeen reader Thor Henrik Bruun.
