So far as I can recall, there _are_ instances of folks printing 3D from 
Mathematica on those expensive machines. In fact, I have a small 
sculpture, received as a gift, that allegedly was designed and printed 
using Mathematica. But whether the printing was directly from 
Mathematica or through some intermediary export format I don't know.
