3d modelling and iterative improvements that slowly reveal themselves over days/weeks takes alot more focus and desire than the average folk tends to have.

Tough, 3D-Printed Ceramics Could Help Build Hypersonic Planes

[...]

This new method is 100 to 1,000 times faster than previous 3D-ceramic-printing techniques, the researchers said. Furthermore, electron microscopy of the end products detected none of the porosity or surface cracks that normally weaken ceramics; indeed, these silicon carbide materials were 10 times stronger than commercially available ceramic foams of similar density, the scientists noted.

Autodesk Built A Super-Fast 3-D Printer For Huge Objects

[...]

Here's how it works. Let's say you want to print something huge, like the blade to a wind turbine. Autodesk's Project Escher software first takes the plans for that blade and intelligently slices it apart. It then hands a slice of the finished turbine to each individual 3-D printing "bot," placed in a gantry. There's no limits to the number of bots you can have in a gantry, says Bloome, who was the hardware lead for the project, it just depends how many 3-D printers you have. Working together, each bot 3-D prints its own section of the finished piece, until it's completed as one continuous, pre-assembled object.

The result is a unique kind of 3-D printing network that prints out faster the more bots are in the Project Escher array. Bloome tells me that it's 80% to 90% more efficient. In other words, if you have five bots in a Project Escher job, the finished design will print out around 4-4.5 times faster than it would with a single 3-D printer.

[...]

Project Escher could also be used in an automated assembly line. While right now the gantry isn't made up of anything but 3-D printers, Bloome says there's no reason robot arms can't be added to the network, so that non-additive elements like wires and circuit boards could be embedded during the printing process. Theoretically, you could 3-D print a complex object or gadget this way, like a car, without any humans being involved in the process once they hit Project Escher's start button.
