A Cambridge man is facing charges for allegedly using his 3D printer to make gun parts.

Although this was certainly not the intended purpose of the printer, some people have used the technology to attempt to create firearms.

Waterloo Regional Police launched an investigation following reports that this occurred at a residence in Cambridge.

Officers searched a home in that city this week and discovered various 3D-printed handgun receivers and other handgun parts, as well as several prohibited devices and a prohibited weapon.

A 32-year-old Cambridge man has been arrested and charged with various offenses including manufacturing a firearm.

He is scheduled to appear in court in March.
