I'm reluctant to plug a commercial service, but have any of you looked at www.shapeways.com? It's an online 3D printing service where you can upload STL files and they mail you your part - in an amazing variety of available materials.  I recently had a camera part made in stainless steel for a fraction of just the material cost to make it by machining from bar stock.  There may be other similar things out there, but this is the one I've happened to come across.

It will be interesting to see what the private sector does with this technology. Very informative piece!
