I made a $15 donation and will supposedly be emailed the plans soon. I've located several printers in the area who have the machine necessary to print the hive. If I get the plans and manage to get it printed out and assembled I'll give you a total cost on the hive.
Here is the video in youtube format that explains the project. Whether or not you believe CCD is a problem, it looks like a really cool way to obtain a hive.
