3D Printing

I recently began fooling around with digital sculpting and thought wow that looks cool, but I wish I could hold it in my hands. I looked into buying a 3D printer but they are still out of my budget. It also seems that all of the ones I have researched on YouTube are failed prints or have a few bugs like most desktop printers and scanners had in the 90’s. I think I would lose my shit if something was printing for 2 hours and then it had an error. I also have no desire to throw $500 dollars at a so so printer when I can probably get one for half that and more reliable in a year. So I’ve looked online at some companies that will print my creations in a variety of materials, namely shapeways.com and sculpteo.com. I modeled a bust from my imagination in Sculptris and will order the cheapest material print I can get from both companies and see which I prefer. I will use the bust of Sir Reggie below for the prints. On a side note if you live in the Baltimore area and have experience casting things in resin or bronze I would love to learn.
