I have a fair amount of experience with 3d printers.
The issue you'll run into is that you need a printer with a very high resolution, and be prepared to spend a lot of time finishing the part once it's done.
Also, you mention about people designing parts to give away for free. I wish you luck in finding people who are willing to put in hours and hours of their time to model something and then give it away for free.
