Yeah, I had a quick look through the features of Rhino to see if I could use it for 3D printing... I sort of discounted it as not ideal because it doesn't output STL's. OBJ output might possibly work if I put it through something like MeshLab to convert it to an STL but it seemed like a bit of fannying about that I could sidestep by just using something else.
The iScope thing Ry's talking about is this http://www.iscope.com/
it's basically 2 tubes and a smartphone case.. the retail for £100 in eBay. Trouble is, because the agency I've been using price up on swept volume, they would probably work out to be about £40 to print from them anyway..
