\"As we said in our lawsuit filed yesterday, it\'s crazy to give criminals the tools to make untraceable, undetectable 3D printing guns.
However, this is exactly what the Trump administration has decided to allow.

It is also illegal to make guns with 10 or more imported parts, with metal detectors or X-ray machines.
The battle for blueprints began in 2013, when Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson made the first fully 3D printed pistol and posted the design documents online.

It believes that uploading these documents is equivalent to illegally exporting guns.
Wilson filed a lawsuit, and the federal government shocked all those involved by changing their positions.
