Not yet, but been following it for many years.
There are several companies in NZ who can do it for you, in a range of materials, and they'll also be able to advise what is the best option for you. The range of print materials is developing almost by the day, and you can get anything from a simple ABS, through carbon fibre re-inforced, to stainless steel, to titanium - with many options in between.
These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)

Just go on 3Dhubs

https://www.3dhubs.com/manufacture/?technology=cnc-machining

You just load you files and it'll give you a bunch of quotes from people throughout NZ (and the world) who can print for you.

I've had a few parts done by a guy out in west Auckland now
