Is spraying tar on road cracks in multiple passes really 3D printing?

    Road crews have done this for years since paving roads was a thing, only recently called 3D printing. I have never seen a municipality road project that lays an asphalt road in one pass, so can we call multiple passes with a tar truck and steamroller 3D printing too!

    We are playing a bit fast and loose with the term '3D printing'.

    I happened to see one of the hole repair bots in action earlier today. Slick!
