3D printing as art

8 metre Long Boat 3D Printed In 100,000 Different Pieces

Reminds me of the art installations 6 years or so ago that focused on social media. Tweets with a particular hash tag relayed to a display - that sort of thing.

Artists always seem to lead the way. 3D printing is going to be huge. Demonstrating that a complex piece of art can be generated from 100,000 separate parts what is stopping those parts being printed in different places and then brought together? What about if this process becomes quicker and cheaper?
