Making custom revolver grips laser cut DIY gun

Started with the idea of making custom revolver grips with CAD template printed off to make a 3D printed gun using a laser cutter. We selected a variety of wood species for the handle grips then 3D engraved the checkering on the revolver. The plastic material was cut using both 1/16" and also tried 1/8" black ABS for the plastic gun frame. This .357 magnum revolver handgun has real working rotating cylinder that can be removed and changed out. This is a real life size decorative gun. 3D printed guns continue to improve in resolution and quality as technology advances. This diy gun grip was tested on sever wood species of hard maple, mahogany, and walnut.
