Many think that the next big step in 3D printing is when we’ll be able to print in metal, well, at an affordable rate. But what about printing in metal and plastic at the same time? The thing is, most electronics are typically two-dimensional.

The closer you look the more you will be in awe of this shockingly intricate 777 replica. The fully-articulating landing gear alone has over 2,000 parts and 200 hours of assembly, not even including the penny-sized tires with individually-cut lug nuts. All carved from manilla office folders by hand.

In most cases, if you were to 3D print a plastic christmas tree using an FDM method, the end result wouldn’t look too much like an actual tree; it would probably more closely resemble a box residing underneath the christmas tree.
