3D printing is a skill right now.  And it may perhaps always remain that way as we push the boundaries of filaments and techniques.  Many of todays prints can be categorized into useful items and trinkets/aesthetic items.  In the field of printing for your car most of the items fit into the former category, perhaps especially for older Mercedes and Land Rovers.
