Onalaska High School 3-D printer security monitored

A federal judge is stopping a Texas company from distributing plans for guns that can be created using a 3-D printer.

While the plans are not currently available, local school districts are recognizing the impact the plans could have.

The Onalaska school district has a 3-D printer in the school’s fab lab.

Onalaska High School’s principal says security is a focus for the school.

“There’s a camera located inside our 3-D printer, so our teacher can see at all times what is printing, there is a print record of everything that prints, the user that created it,” said Jared Schaffner, Principal of Onalaska High School.

Prosecutors will be back in court next week and hope the judge will make the temporary order more permanent.
