However production in that setting is still 'normal' and as such autocannons which can be machined for pennies on the dollar are everywhere: if everything is being 3d-printed perfectly then the disappearance of the costs involved in precision optics would somewhat tip the scales. I feel like I didnât entirely do it justice, so hereâs a bit of a longer explanation on what it is, and why I think itâs great. Hmm. 9,440 backers pledged $432,029 to help bring this project to life.
