Hi Paul,
You might find the company I work for very interesting. 3D stl direct into metal. Check out: . The standard print media is not the ideal material for skinware, but they are experimenting with a Palladium /Silver brew. Anyway, the company is in the "hood" and they are doing some amazing things for people with computer modeling skills. is the decorative arts unit.
