The season opener of the TV show Elementary featured a murder committed with a plastic gun that was built using a 3D printer, then the gun was dissolved (except for the firing pin, which was a nail). Distrubing. But possible?

I've actually printed the 3d gun. However it is a bunch of hype. you could build a safer, more reliable, and cheaper gun from a piece of pipe. You could also print a knife. 

The shows were just looking for some way to be relevant to the trends. That part is pretty cool.

Ya, well, in the show, one of the guns did blow up and fail!
