LLUMC just purchased two, one for the prosthetics department to create real-time limbs and one for the school of dentistry to create real-time dental appliances. But then these are $200k machines, so probably much more massive than what you are looking at. I know that we are going to release a pair of desktop models in the near future, but I don't have the specs on them yet.
The technology is really incredible. There is even one manufacturer that has one that will print using a food based substrate!
