I don't want everything made out of abs plastic. Has anyone come up with designs that can incorporate other materials?

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for.. Shapeways has materials from Gypsum, to Nylon, even Steel and Glass.

That's an awesome idea.
Print a candle design?

I think the challenge in this for printing would be getting the wick in there.

You could just leave a hole and pass the wick through it after printing. That's the way those cheap tealights are done.

Or you could make a mold to pour the wax into.
