Criminals in Sydney, Australia have gone high-tech, using 3D printed components to scam ATM users out of their hard earned cash. By utilizing 3D printing, the criminals create faux ATM components to house information-stealing electronics - the components are cheap and fast to create, thanks to FDM technology. This "skimming" technology is hard to detect and easy to replicate.

Will 3D printed crime make its way to the United States?
