styckx: Why do they call them printers and not CNC machines?

CNC machines use subtractive processes to form a smaller part out of a larger piece of stock material. (Cutting, grinding, etc)
3D printers use additive processes to form large parts out of a reservoir of stock material. (FDM, SLA, etc)

Then you install all the parts that normally take up all the time and expense like fixtures, carpeting, windows, wiring, hardware, etc. etc. Foundation and inspections will probably be a joy too.
