The information on that audio file is sent to electromagnetic mirrors and laser beams that vibrate and move in accord with the data to build 3D objects from a specialized acrylic resin.
Unlike other more expensive devices, Grayston's Peachy Printer has no motors or microprocessors.
With marketing help from Nathan Grayston, 22, a YouTube video introducing their 3D printer kit attracted a total of $720,000 in crowdsourced money, the bulk of that from the online entrepreneur support network Kickstarter.

What printer did you get? Eventually I want to build a ginourmous 36" x 36" printer to do an entire front triangle mold for a carbon frame...

Prusa i3 mk3 is the most featured for 8" cubed, 200mm. Kit $750. The i3 mk2 is cheaper and a good printer but lacks some really advanced features available on the mk3, the class leader at the moment.
Creality (CR-10S etc) has some fairly low cost big volume printer models. Fairly basic but seem to work. About $500 and up depending on the size, 300x300x400 to 500x500x500 models. Some older models lower in cost lacking some features.
I don't have any of these, but I have looked at a lot of reviews.
