    US Army Develops 3D Printed Grenade Launcher

    The US Army is introducing a 3D printed grenade launcher, complete with 3D printed grenades, that could revolutionize how soldiers are equipped for warfare.

A major difference is that all of RAMBO's parts, except the springs and fasteners, were produced through additive manufacturing. The production of RAMBO was a six-month collaborative effort by the US Army Manufacturing Technology (ManTech), the US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM), and national 3D printing accelerator America Makes.
