I printed out one on a FormLabs Form1+.  Came out very nicely.

I don't know that it was much cheaper when I did it - the resin is $125/liter.

The advantage of Shapeways is you can have it made out of something
less brittle than FormLab resin.  My part will work, but I wouldn't
want to drop it - the legs would probably shatter.
