Although I have my own 3D printer (Lulzbot Mini), it can only print in extruded plastic. To produce models in materials like sandstone and steel I use a professional printing company called Shapeways. They have some very advanced machinery that can produce some very impressive prints in a number of materials. In the case of sandstone and steel, both materials are printed using the same method called Binder Jetting. Here is how the process works (courtesy of hubs.com):

Beis Hamikdash Models as seen on Inside Artscroll
last post I linked to an interview I did on Inside Artscroll. During the interview I showed two of the 3D printed models that I designed to teach about the Beis Hamikdash. One of the models was made of sandstone and the other was made of steel. Read on for a description of how these models are printed.
To see more of the models I print through Shapeways feel free to check out my shop.
