3D Printed Panels For Smart?

Local Motors printed a 3D body for their electric vehicle. Could it be used to print panels for the Smart Fortwo?

One could - potentially - create some very unique panels for the Smart Fortwo?

I had some GoPro camera mounts printed in this manner, but I found the material to be very fragile at any sharp joint. The mounts snapped very easy, even though they looked good initially. It was fairly costly to have them done up, too. I suppose they use a different quality of material for the car parts being made. My camera mounts looked very sharp and crisp, but like say, they broke very easily at the sharp edges and didn't last long for the money. Maybe they have worked all of this out though. It was maybe 2-3 years back when I had the camera mounts made up for myself.
