I looked into one of these things for 3d printing some small scale pilots and other details we would like for our stuff. They also have a web site with a lot of files for tools, jigs and all kinds of other goodies you can download. Aside from the learning curve the only other gotcha I saw with this system is the cost of the plastic wire to make the parts. A couple of guys in their forums are working on project to make your own but I think it's still a ways off. Larger projects or one with many parts can get pretty expensive.
