3D printed firearms cause a considerable problem in criminal investigations because they do not leave the “conventional” ballistic traces. It is therefore essential to look at the other types of traces they leave, such as chemical traces from the polymers used in 3D printing.
The lack of knowledge and the increase in reported cases involving 3D printed firearms make it essential to develop and optimize methods of detection and interpretation of traces related to their use to be better prepared to fight against this growing phenomenon.
