Just wondering if you think this would be possible to rapid prototype or not ?, if not any idea on how i could prototype it!. basically its a disc dropper ^.^

I've included a pdf with some images, the quality messed up :/ but i hope you get the idea, its 220mm high, 60 mm diameter including square edge sections.

The design seems fundamentally printable. You'll have to take some of the loose pieces and sprue them together so they won't get lost / damaged during the cleaning process.

The trouble is going to be that at the size you're wanting.. it's going to be a bit pricey:
