These things are amazing.  They print anything in all three dimensions.

Here are some sample pics:

Could you please link the big pictures? They are horribly huge and break the tables.

on topic: That thing is awesome.  You could print a 3d printer with that, and than print a 3d printer with that printer and use those machines to print an army of printers and then take over the world.

Sorry about the size, I still have that XP auto resize thing enabled, didn't realize they were that large.

Incredible.  What kind of program does one need to print those?  Do they come with their own software, or do most 3D modeling programs support them?

I think it will print from any CAD/CAM software.  But I am sure the drivers are hell to setup with that thing.

I'm guessing never.  Unless you think the masses know how to operate CAD/CAM software.
