“In the fashion industry designers are creating one off shoe designs for the catwalk by use of 3D printing.
Architects can use 3D to create one off 3D models and what about for prop design and manufacture? Imagine one was filming in a remote area, then take a 3D printer, the right ingredients and print on site.

It will not be unfeasible to download the manufacturer’s software and print the part.” – Julian Wilkins, BluePencilSet
