It wasn't an intentional comparison, but rather, a digression. My original point was that 3D printing advances could result in the outsourcing of hull production, removing the need for builders to finance/afford their own 3D printers. That sort of veered off into whether or not 2D printing advances had resulted in the outsourcing of book printing.

Sorry about that. I get distracted easily. Oh look over there, a squirrel!
