First 3D Printed Bump Key

Two German engineers have created a skeleton key, one that can open any lock, using 3D printing. This key has multiple grooves cut to the same length that will fit into conventional locks. Using 3D printing, keys can be created using accessible equipment. The engineers do not intend to release the software, but this demonstration does show how standard key locks can be compromised.
