Default 3-D printed wheels

I'm on the fence on how appealing they are, but cool technology none the less.

That video is way too much talking head and not enough wheel. It has been cool to see additive develop but one of those wheels alone would probably be in the $20K plus range if not more. As much as I love and use my 3D printer...its the most over promised tech on the world.

You should check out generative design and topology optimization if this interests you.

Yes, and they're also fully semi-automatic.
