3D Print vs Airport Security


Today I had a tough time convincing airport security to let me carry this 3D printed adjustable spanner in my hand baggage. I tried explaining that it was made out of plastic and not metal and hence couldn’t be used to tighten or loosen a real nut, which I knew was a lie. “So So what is this used for?” asked the security person. I replied, “It’s a sample 3D print just like these other parts in the box.”. “3D 3D print?”, he asked suspiciously. I knew then that I had opened a can of worms.
