Prefab+3D Printing=?

As I watch news and blog posts on various discussions centered around 3D printing and other digital fabrication methods at the construction scale and then I read articles like the one I am sharing here. I cannot help but scratch my head and wonder if prefab and modular design is being so prevalent, why are the digital technologies that make these kinds of operations possible more readily accepted?

Another interesting thread hear is now to compare the work the Bill Kreysler is doing in the prefab arena in the San Franisco Bay Area as he is working on both the SFMOMA expansion project with Snohetta (also see both of these links, dFab Net and archdaily), and his recently rumored role in the construction of the new Apple headquarters with Fosters+Partners.
