Is this something that can be done with the 3d printer?

I'm no expert, but I'd say - as one piece, not likely - as two pieces, most likely.

If you had one, you could make a mold and cast with resin. That or try to scan it in. Agreed, probably a 2 piece print if you print it.

I'd say CNC/Laser the base piece, and then 3d print/cnc/resin cast the top piece. That would be my path ahead if i were to attempt to recreate that with tools at the lab.

I do have one now. 

If they're selling for $20, and I want 5.  Would doing all of that be less than the $100 to purchase from them?

In all honesty, probably not. :) Prototyping is expensive, but once you get it down, replicating it is cheaper. The trouble here is that you have to prototype all over again.

A tad off topic, but since it was mentioned, is anyone doing resin casting in the Lab?
