This is totally cool!  Ford now offers downloadable print files for select Ford vehicles that you can use to print on your own 3-D printer. 

With consumer 3-D printers dropping below $2,000, Ford is reaching out to Ford fans around the world with another great idea. If you don't yet have a printer, you can also order a pre-printed model online directly from Ford by visiting 3d.ford.com. Most manufacturers and even local Custom shops use 3-D printers to fabricate prototypes of replacement or custom parts allowing them to quickly customize your ride. 

Ford has been using 3-D print models for their design process for some time. And now they are using the technology to reach out to Ford fans. According to Ford, although the available files and models are limited at this time other Ford vehicle files are on their way. A hint to Ford dealers, if they haven't already thought of it... buy a 3-D printer and start printing for your customers. I'd like the Ford Raptor please!
