Best dance around not allowing 3D Printed parts this season (2022)

Every year there is a question or three about using 3D printed parts.

This years question is about printing HS bearings, from Seth an event partner. Since HS bearings have been out of stock most of the season, can they be printed?

The answer is:

Ok Seth, ball is in your court, ask the question again but make sure you reference the rules (and the answer has the rule list to reference)

I’m a little surprised that the GDC didn’t go with the much shorter answer to a similar question found here: legality of 3d printed pneumatic tank mounts : Robot Events


Yes, Seth, please do ask this while following the Q&A guidelines.
I get very excited when we can use the clear and concise one word answers.
