this is pretty crazy. Makes me wonder how far off we are from having companies print replica parts, or even entire truck bodies.

The sooner they can print entire bodies the better. The wife wants me to start fixing all the trail damage before I get to go on each trip...Shocked Crying or Very sad

Trail damage? Shit if its not a gaping hole or a missing body panel/broken window. It's a merit bag IMHO.

I think there is a few on-demand 3d print places in NYC now. Kind of like a Staples or Kinkos but with 3d printing and CAD drawings.

I know that one of the office supply stores is doing that in Europe now as a test. And they planned on starting that service in the US here this year.
