I posted ("shot") first and "questioned" later. After Conducttor's reply I went online to see what was available for 3d printers in the under $500 range. There are a number of such printers available, but the end product, while fairly good is, not any where near to what I want to produce for TT parts in terms of detail and quality of detail. Nearly all of these cheap machines run at about 100 microns of resolution. Apparently you have to get down to around 50 microns to get a good end product. Then there's the issue of the time it would take to produce a part at such level of quality detail. At this point it appears that the capable machines, as Richard B points out, are well into four figures.

Hopefully Richard will let us know how his $99 little wonder 3d printer works out. The web site linked by Richard says stuff can be printed out down to 42-43 microns! Hope springs eternal!

At Kickstarter is a project for yet under $500. I think about a purchase of the big brother Kudo3D Titan 2.
