3D printing

3D printing has grown in prevalence and has revolutionized fashion. Shoes and even bras can be printed from the computer creating sculptures without the need for any traditional techniques. 
3D objects are created by sending a digital file or scan to a printer which then builds the item layer by layer. This potentially eliminates the need for hand made sculptures. However with the growth of 3D printing becoming slowly more readily available could this lead to piracy?
