Well I thought about that once and visit an exponation about a couple of months ago, but see mainly these problems:

-How strong is the plastic used? Will not be some kind of fiber reinforced like used at conventional made ones due the injection process which use some wires.

-The finish is not flawless of what I saw. Only real expensive printers used in industry can make superior quality, but not at those shops.

-The bolts are casted in, possible on a 3D printer?

And even if, making a CAD will be very time consuming I guess...
