Replicator 3D Printing Technology

As I was an early adopoter to the current 3D printing Boom and growth that we've been seeing over the last decade especially with the growth and success of Protos Eyewear the first consumer grade 3D printed eyewear that also is completely customizable based on the metrics of your face I was amazed to see Scientific American with the replicator article today. It scans the object and completely replicates it as one solid piece as opposed to additive manufacturing layer by layer. Curious to learn more about this (if you come across this and do please contact me).

With the Protos Eyewear project the crafting and customizing of the hinges proved to be one of the most difficult tasks so I'm curious how this would replicate a pair of high end eyewear?
