Have you asked Uwe Meffert or Calvin Fan? If they would produce blind man pyraminxes with such tiles or tile sets it should be a much lower price (and I assume a better quality) compared to 3D print. Maybe worth a try.

The one pictured here is a rare collection piece from the former USSR. I think that most collectors don't have it due to it's rarity, and then if it's found from time to time it costs quite a lot if it's complete. A common problem with this puzzle is that it's often missing one or more of the tiles. Also, the pictured puzzle is based on a Russian Pyraminx, which means that it's smaller in size than Meffert's/Tomy/etc Pyraminx, and it has a different internal construction.

Nope. They're both the same. The one sold from Hungary is actually Russian and with the Russian booklet.
