The auto industry has been using 3D "printing" for some time. I've recall seeing this on a PBS Nova.

Regarding autonomous flight, the Global Hawk is already there:
Once mission parameters are programmed into Global Hawk, the UAV can autonomously taxi, take off, fly, remain on station capturing imagery, return and land. Ground-based operators monitor UAV health and status, and can change navigation and sensor plans during flight as necessary.
