The company said that it is a sad experience for the relatives to see the dead person's damaged body at the funeral. Artificial limbs are available, but it seriously costs. Creating body parts with a 3D printer is much cheaper.
Concerning usability of 3D printed objects, their vulnerability is sometimes issued. Creating a gun with a 3D printer is unfeasible at present regardless of legal issues. In the funeral, mock body parts do not need so much toughness. Therefore, 3D printing is fitting to such an opportunity.
China has the largest population in the world. It means that the largest number of funeral will be held. Some Chinese are eager to dress their relatives so that they can gain respect from others. I think this business will be successful.
