If anyone is interested, I use the monoprice miniselect 3d printer. It costs $200. Im very happy with it.

I think the its strong points, besides the price, is that the community fully understands how it works, information is available on how to fix it, modify it. see http://mpselectmini.com/.
As mentioned before, 3d printing currently is more of an art. The technology has progressed, but not to the extent like using a laser printer. You need to be willing to tinker. You need to be a DIYer.

Is this method commercially available? I cant find any info online. Thanks

I think this is available at contractors who prototype and fabricate 3d models, but not really as an off-the-shelf product or service. From my limited knowledge each type of mold has certain limitations and your 3d model has to be done right so the mold can produced the desired output. If you're interested I can get someone in contact with you who will probably have more answers.
