Reminds me of a SF story I read recently.  Wars will be fought 
over these machines.   They will be restricted from producing 
banned products, like Polonium 210 or iPods.

The people who use the machines will only license them and won't 
be able to use the machine to make copies of them.

People will have rations to use the machines to make things
they want or need - a car would use your year's supply, 
a replacement battery for your mofo just a snip off the ticket.

If the machine malfunctions, it leaves behind a crater of sand fused
to glass - it's fusion powered of course!
