This project called RepRap might interest some of you:
short for Replicating Rapid-Prototyper, the open source hardware and software machine basically 3D-prints any object you design in a conventional 3D design software!
Not with the same precision as a 35.000,- one, but the DIY- device can be built for less than 500,- and it works precise enough to replicate it's own parts ...
It's possible to use different materials: obivously plastic, but Vik Olliver, who presented the project in Vienna last week, also has a part ready that would enable using metal and with minor adjustments even chocolate would be an option ... *yum*
