plus a couple bucks for the spring... disposable mags sound awesome
So after looking at the Menendez magazine v2.0 pack, the Menendez is a standard capacity mag. The extenendez is a 30rd. You get a file to print the baseplate, mag body and follower. The spring you can order from many of places online. There is a template for an aluminum stick that you can use as a jig to bend piano wire to make your own.

"They" have printable mags for glocks, ar15, ar15 .22lr, 10/22, cz scorpion and some others. Some of them are not there yet for durability as followers and feed lips get shaved down.

You could crank out glock mags for 6 or 7 bucks using ebay springs. You can order them from Ali express for a dollar or two cheaper.

@vmax I thought I would tag you in on this as you just got one of these. This feller has some decent 3d printed content but he has been working through some available scorpion prints. One of the videos is pretty funny as the gun only makes it like 3 or 4 rounds before it falls apart.

If you search his YouTube videos he has a couple on the scorpion.

Having worked (still do) for Mercedes for over 20 years now this is the truth. I have started seeing trim parts and special tools that are clearly 3d printed. Mind you they are clearly a higher quality material and printer than my $250 dollar unit.

At one point in the future, probably sooner than later I am guessing the manufactures will load dealerships with some sort of industrial sized machine and print parts on demand.

During our SpaceX tour, they said the goal was 100% metal printing of all parts for the Mars habitat...because on Mars, any busted parts are gonna have to be repaired or created on site.

Makes total sense, but I hadn’t really thought about it until that point.

I think that's pretty cool that they did that.

Here is one for the beretta guys. It may look funky but it allows a feller to snatch up parts kits and put together a working firearm.

Also, if not mentioned in here, the large scale 3D printed houses are coming online. I know there are some in Austin. There are some cool videos on YouTube about it.


They have several setups using central fixtures, gantry's and conveyors.

Here is another quick link of different setups.

I watched a YT video about 3D printing on Mars that posited that robotic ships would arrive first, scrounge raw materials, and print basic shelters long before the people arrived. Fascinating stuff.
