Spanish police found a clandestine laboratory where weapons were printed on a 3D printer. The operation to neutralize the workshop was held on the Canary Island of Tenerife last September, but only now the Interior Ministry declassified the details of the case.
As noted by police officers, this was the first discovered in Spain clandestine shop for creating weapons on a 3D printer. Gunsmith caught red-handed when one of the printers finished printing the body of the gun. During the search two 3D printers, various parts for the production of firearms, and finished samples were seized. Manufacturing weapons from plastic are banned in almost every country in the world. The exception is the United States. There is a company that operates legally in this direction. However, it produces plastic weapons with metal inserts.
