There's been news stories lately of 90% of a gun can be made at home if you buy a 3D printer. So much for your theory.  Plus a gun is a lot different than a camera if you hadn't noticed.

I've seen the CAD files online, but yet no pictures or video of it being fired. There are a lot of things that can be designed to be made on a 3d printer at home, but there's no guarantee it will work. And even if it does fire, that would not guarantee it being accurate, and maintaining that accuracy after a relatively high level of abuse.
