That is awesome. Was this done with access to higher-end printing machines (I know zero about it other than videos and very, very light reading/ads for home 3D printers)?

Bunch of questions...

Did you model everything and build it?
How much did it cost to do (not including the machine etc, just the mouse and parts and materials)?
What kind is the material end result (is it basically plastic or fiberglass or..)?

Incredibly COOL anyhow. I'm amazed at 3D printing tech even if it's still relatively new in technological standards. I have no idea what I'd use a machine for but I can easily see machines building everyday things in that people need, instead of running to a store or online to buy them - say in about 30ish years. Maybe sooner.

I printed it on an SLS machine at my local maker space. That printer costs about 10k USD.
Yeah, I 3D scanned an UL2 and modeled the design myself. Cost is hard to say but a looot of hours.
The SLS printer prints with a material called PA12.
