Go to all my models

Its late and I wanted to post a question, and maybe come back to see the answer later when I wake up.

The journey that brought me here: I need a transparent toroid for an electrical project I'm doing. It seems there are none available online.

But then, as I'm working out my ideas in Blender 3d (I'm a 3d modeller) it occurred to me I remember this place called Shapeways where I could probably create an entire model, toroid included, and have it sent to me.

My question: Lets suppose I wish to create a transparent torus about the size of a dinner plate, transparent like glass. Can this be done here?

Lets suppose I wish to include other elements in this design, as a luxury, such as mountings, battery casings, and so forth...can these be "printed" here too?

How do costs work on a project like this? I'm fairly expert in 3d modeling, I upload to turbosquid and such, so that is not an issue. I just need advice on the physical aspect of things.

Here is my website ; http://www.clipartillustration.com/11110/free-illustration-t esla-magnifying-transmitter-aka-wardenclyffe-tower-a-technol ogical-work-of-art/

Thank you. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
