Just thinking out loud.
Depends on how deep your pockets are I guess.. I'd imagine that would be very expensive.
But... There's been quite a few hackers who have adapted the XBox Kinnex camera to be able to do 3D scans... who knows in the not too distant future you might be able to show your xbox something and tell it to make it for you
3D printers are really starting to trend now... once they start being mass produced I can see prices coming down to laser printer prices.
