I've heard of teams doing both.  The advantage to printing is that you can
parallelize the build process.  My team was able to knock out 9 of the 10
models in 2 1/2 hours last Saturday.  If you do print them, you can print
in black and white because the instructions list the color of all of the
parts for each step.
