If the technology advances enough to print with stronger materials, AND the cost comes down those things will be huge.

No more running to Menards for that plastics widget that broke, if you know how to paint you can make your own decoys...endless possibilities

The decoy thing would be awesome.

You hit on a huge point with the existing concrete castings using thing method, which is structural integrity. High speed or early cure concrete is not always a good thing. When managed and placed even slightly improperly it is weak, crazes, cracks, etc... This causes all kinds of problems. Aesthetics can be masked with a facade so that is not an issue for this technology. They also do not address how this method of concrete placement will handle rebar which is vital to the long term structural integrity of concrete.

I am on the edge of my chair trying to figure how to make a buck off those things. I would bet you are right in that it is going to be huge. I've heard the Jay Leno has one in his garage to replicate parts for his car collection. This is going to CHANGE society, and I bet they are eventually as ubiquitous as cell phones are now.
