First of all, Merry Christmas to everyone! I have noticed that some modelers are starting to get parts made by this type of process. Is it expensive and to Canadian followers are their any 3D companies in the Toronto area?

Merry Christmas to you also, I have purchased various stuff from TDR innovations, The use shapeways to do there printing. very nice quality stuff in my opinion, It can be expensive depending what scale you are working in, also there big the part and the scale the better the quality from what i have seen.

Are these made-to-order parts or from their inventory?

I varies depending on material and who you go with, Shapeways at the moment is the cheapest with the cheapest shipping, Sculpteo is the second best but unless youre ordering 50$ in parts the shipping is 20$ for anything over 10$

I was just wondering if they could scan a 1/24 parts tree and enlarge it to 1/14. I have a very nicely molded 1/14 RC Mercedes SLS AMG with a detailed interior (which, of course, is a curbside), that I would like to add an engine to, and I've ordered a 1/24 Revell kit to use as detail reference.
