There are much better technologies for making things. Besides, 3D printing isn't even new. What's new is the consumer grade machines. But they are very weak compared to other means of making things.

I'm gluing the Fin Leading Edge to a piece of tissue, then gluing the assembly onto the body of the airplane (the body is aka Motor Stick). I'm entertaining having them reverse the order of steps. glue tissue to the motor stick then the Fin Leading Edge to that. Would that be simpler?
