Wilson visited the ATF field office in Austin on Monday to ask about the legal and regulatory issues surrounding the Wiki Weapons project, he tells Danger Room. Instead, he was brought into a room, questioned and was told the agency was preparing to visit his apartment this afternoon for an “investigation,” he says. He added that the ATF believes he’s not broken any laws, and that the agency believes 3-D printed guns fall into a regulatory gray area, but that he still needs to get licensed if he’s to manufacture a weapon.

I thought you all might enjoy seeing a little more of the creation process behind these pieces. Each piece starts with a drawing or painting from my imagination. Sometimes I work with a manufacturer from the beginning to tailor a piece to their desires. With these figurines, I already had created the images for my own pleasure, and happily the manufacturer liked them too. But, none of the original paintings were full figure. I redrew each piece for the manufacturer, creating a concept for the bottom of the figure, and adding details. They gave these drawings to their sculptors who created the wax piece for casting. At that stage of the process there is a lot of back and forth communication between me and the company to make sure the sculptor is accurately guessing at the details they must imagine, that are not visible in the drawings. Once we are all happy with the wax, it’s ready to be molded, cast and painted. These great figurines are the result of about a year of work.

What’s more, these practices are beginning to change how many other companies are operating – including companies beyond the web game. the financial giant Goldman Sachs recently told Wired that it buys gear directly from Asian manufacturers such as Quanta – the same manufacturers that build gear on behalf of American server sellers such as Dell and HP. And with Facebook open sourcing the designs of its custom servers, the trend is trickling down to smaller operations looking to save cost – and power – inside the data center.
