      It really depends on the size of the model and whether you print it solid or hollow.

      The prosthetic hand that I made only cost £3.50 in materials to make. (You can see a photo of it if you expand the MyTypical Day section on my profile page)

      I find that amazing because it can transform the life of someone who has no fingers for just the cost of a McDonald’s Happy Meal
