Tim (Highly likely) says
Because with 3DPrinting spare parts will be less likely to be sold in brick & mortar & in the future all the data needed for the part will be distributed online just like sites like thingiverse,youmagine,pinshape, cults3D , MyMiniFactory & various others & will be available to make at home or where there is a 3DPrinter & this parts are available anywhere with internet which saves money on shipping & can cut on border duty & collaboration is worldwide and if a part breaks it can be remade without needing to buy a new part & a lot of those parts are free though some are paid design , but the designs are unlimited similar to downloading music
