It takes hours to cut one wheel on a CNC. At $100+ per hour of shop time, that could get very expensive. I made a fan hub for a Stirling engine I made. It was 3" diameter and very simple other than the multi-axis planes on it for attaching the blades. It took about 30 minutes to make one, not including the time it took to write the g-code for the CNC to understand what you wanna do. That specific code was 17,000 lines long, and someone spent a lot of time designing and writing it. That all takes time, which as we all know, is money. It's not as simple as just imagining the wheel, and turning the machine on and expecting it to know what you are thinking.
