this is a fantastic application of 3D P3D Printer, allows surgeons to foresee issues, not stumble into them.

anybody with experience with latest models of 3D printers? What is the best 3D printer to buy to print out my Planck Photon Rocket?

This may be useful as a baseline for quality and pricing: PC Magazine - Best 3D Printers of 2017 - Jan 2017

There may be new products available and price changes since Jan., of course.

The FormLabs Form2 at about $3,500 is the high end end, although I suspect this project would deserve an even better printer than that.

It gets a very good review ("Editor's Choice") though, so potentially good for initial prototyping.

There may also be some opportunities to lease time on industrial grade printers at certain companies and university labs.

Those kinds of partnerships, even when money is changing hands, take time, but the access to the equipment (and researchers) for more advanced work is worth consideration.

MIT has just announced a giant 3D printer that can create buildings.

MIT News April 27 2017

High profile projects are probably desirable there.
As for finding a woman to ride in or on the rocket, I have no idea.  Good luck!
