The thread may have gone quiet but I print lots of parts for my planes. In my case they are mainly scale and in Depron so the parts have to be carefully designed to be as light as possible but still achieve the required duty or appearance.
Lightweight fuselage formers work well.

Rather time consuming to CAD design (and to print) but I am pretty sure it would be hard to achieve a similar result by any other method.
