    "These factory workers (which are 80% female)"

    Most of those workers look 100% female.

    From Wikipedia page:

    The program on the "Earth computer" should have run correctly, but the unexpected arrival of the Golgafrinchans on prehistoric Earth caused input errors into the system—computing (because of the garbage in, garbage out rule) the wrong question—the question in Arthur's subconscious being invalid all along.

    The problem that kept the Earth from computing the answer correctly was that the peoples of Earth were a blend of cavemen and Alien Bureaucrats.

    The Golgafrinchans acted like erroneous input to a computer program.

    There are some advantages to this in that the structures can be lighter and larger than can be launched.

    Anything launched has to withstand 3 G and a lot of vibration, and fit into a fairing.

    They might be tempted to print parts that are under strength, and special coatings and tempering are going to be hard to do.

    Spray painting a coating in space could get ugly.

    For things like instrument and solar array booms it would be great.

    I would run a wire through any long assembly so that if it breaks you don't have to chase the pieces.
