Has anyone seen Jay Lenos new scanner? It scans a complex part then duplicates it using a plastic spray scanner full size. The gears even work. Think of a wood spray option, IPE?
I’m a gear head too & think his site is great, Check it out!

A printer like that was on here a month or two ago.

Our Junior College has that printer but you have to draw the part in AutoCad first then down load the DXF file
into it. That scanner is real cool and under 3 grand that is a valuable tool as quick as it generated a 3d image.
We used the printer to prototype some parts for a local industry for very little cost to them. The printer is like a hot ink jet printer instead of ink it uses plastic and kind of sprays it where needed. It takes awhile to make a part
it is not instant but way quicker then other methods.. Thanks for the post
