3D printing is firstly achieved by creating a design; this design work is created in a CAD software such as google sketch up or some other CAD software. 3D scanners can also be used to import into CAD software; allowing you to duplicate an object or decrease and objects size.

Where can I buy a 3D printer that is affordable

As we have seen, most magnificent 3D printers are expensive but there are some good ones out there that do not break the bank.
