Watsonstudios your minigun is so freakin EPIC!

Since were talking about Defcad,it looks like the Department of defense put their foot down. Who didn't see that coming a mile away.

And that is likely to be how this battle against censorship will always be fought. Information will always be shared faster than it can be taken down. (At least until the internet is run by a police state that has to manually approve all actions.)

Ok, back to the project at hand.... Here is the yolk that mounts the gun to the MK16-type Naval mount. It just came off the printer so it's unfinished and I need to fill a little on the bottom to flatten out some minor warpage. I really need to get a heated bed setup because even PLA needs it - it just doesn't need to be as hot as an ABS heated bed. That's the next mod I'm planning.

Never knew it was such a popular minigun. I was watching The Matrix and I had to pause it because I was SURE it was the same gun Watson printed. Internet investigation suggests it's not quite the same gun, but the same type. And further investigation shows it is far more popular than I knew:
