I have a hard time believing a full helmet or any prop thats being used on set is a straight up 3D print. The prototypes and sculpts were probably printed, but I'd bet the final helmets and props are fiberglass/resin casts of those prototypes.

Seconded, especially after the whole Kylo Ren hilt with its seam line.
What's the melting/warping point of 3d printed nylon, anyone know? It'd be pretty hard to vacuum-plate stuff that has a pretty low melting point - trust me, Daft Punk helmets q.q
