Danish Company "Create It Real" To Prevent Gun Printing
Posted: June 29, 2013 by Maja Johnson
"Create It Real" is a Danish company that has developed software to prevent the 3D printing of guns. According to the CEO of the company, Jeremie Pierre Gay, the software is designed to detect and recognize gun parts to stop 3D printers from printing firearms.
The software will be equipped with a database containing many potential digital gun parts. Once the 3D printer is activated, the software compares the piece it has to print to the pieces stored in its database. If it detects a part similar to those used in firearms, it issues a command to stop printing. The software database which will be stored in people's computers will contain the characteristics of the gun parts, and not the model of the parts. This is done for safety and to prevent future abuse of the software.
According to Jeremie, this software will be used to manage the risks that come from 3D printing. He believes that most of the company's clients will be firms that 3D printer manufacturers. By introducing people with the risks that come from 3D printing, the manufacturers cannot be held responsible for any future actions of their clients.
