Right now for the fine detail I suspect that the pour material and then making production molds from the master is the most labor efficient route. However I see that they only take .1 mm off when they polish strong and flexible. So that might do with a little engraving before molding.|
It appears that more stuff is coming in 3D printing. Shapeways I think will check everything out and if there is something better they will do it.
Check this out: where they are going to have a printer for metal clay. I don't think it will have very good resolution though.
Workflow to save money and time in every aspect of this is of great interest to me.
