Answered: 3D printing parts?

While going through the game manual we noticed a section <R7> part b stating that
" Any parts which are identical to legal VEX parts. For the purpose of this rle, products which are identical in all ways except for color are permissible."
Are we allowed to 3D print parts for our robots for VEX EDR this year?

3D printed parts are only allowed as non functional decorations in the High School and Middle School levels of the VEX Robotics Competition. 3D printed parts are not considered identical to any legal VEX EDR parts, thus they would not fall under <R7b>.
