    You can try to print the models on a 3D printer, but the result will most likely be terrible.
    Cost is another factor. Lego bricks cost about $0.10 each when purchased as a set, I suspect you'd need to print a lot of bricks (even if the quality was high enough) to offset the cost of the printer.
    To get a hard-copy of the Lego models, check out www.lego.com
    A site like http://www.brickowl.com will allow you to purchase specific bricks and colors if you are looking to create a custom model.
