Defense Distributed, a new company that planned to help average people create firearms at home with 3D printers has had their equipment seized by the manufacture after news of their controversial project was picked up by the media.
In an email that Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed received from “Stratasys” the manufacture, he was told that his primary project, Wikiweapon was illegal.
A day later contractors hired by the company arrived at Wilson’s apartment in an Enterprise rental van and took the printer, which apparently hadn’t even been taken out of the box yet.
