The main answer to your question (which needs clarification without disclosing the invention itself) is that being manufactured on a 3D printer does not in itself disqualify the invention from patentability. The original question does not clearly specify:
(The latter is easily very very patentable!) Let us assume that it is the former.
If the object being 3D printed is quite pedestrian in manufacturing techniques outside of the 3D printing world (e.g., say, a paper clip), then simply making a 3D printed paper clip per se is likely not patentable:
Again, (without disclosing the content of the purported 3D-printed innovation), the original question lacks specificity to give a more specific answer than these categorizations of hypotheticals.
