Will the wonders of 3D printing ever cease? With each passing day, something revolutionary seems to come off the machine's printing bed, be it a life-size Ultron helmet (OK, maybe that's not revolutionary), a prosthetic shell for a tortoise or a Shelby Cobra sports car. This time, it's more than 1,000 airplane parts for the Airbus A350 XWB jet.
