There is no multicolor system for this. This is just a consumer grade product, it's not meant for large scaled anything and is really just a hobby piece. I'd be surprised if it lasted more than 4 or 5 hundred prints before breaking down.
You can get different collors but you must buy their cartridges. I just looked and they use ABS plastic, which is really commmon, so if you're not a complete idiot, you should be able to refil them yourselves.
Each cartridge will do about 15 mid sized models so that's like 2.5 x 2.5 x 3 or something like that.
3d printing is rather cool. i just wonder how soon it will become an issue over copyrighted things. as one poster mentioned copying war-hammer stuff. can you see them easily letting go of the huge profits they make as people start making their own for a rather small percentage of what games workshop sells it for? $200 for that prediter tank for example. i actually got out of war-hammer due to the fact of it's ridiculously high priced models, paints and glues. i loved the painting and the game but couldn't afford to continue after they kept jacking up the prices for cheap plastic models.

Can this replicate casino poker chips with RFID chips in them?

Well technically even if you copied a Warhammer or a 40k model it would not have any value and would be against the game rules to play with. It would be like photo copying a Magic the Gathering card, it would be useless because its not game legal. You are not necessarily paying for the "flavor" of the product when it comes to table tops and card games, you are paying for its functionality within the game.
