@Sculptingman, I contacted the local foundry, and they DO take .stl files, print, and cast. I don’t know if they’ll cast a pre-existing model…she talked about a material that I didn’t recognize. They do large-scale art foundry casting.
The only problem is that the turnaround is 12 weeks. However, being near Austin, it sounds like they are up on the latest technology. I told them your project was small, and she said it would still take 12 weeks…not sure if they could work it in.
Another possibility is Shapeways, although I don’t know about their bronze capabilities as far as casting. They use a sintering technology for some of their bronze.
You might want to work your way through that list to see if anyone can meet your timeline. You will probably need to put in some finish work once you receive the casting back - it will be most likely be raw and in need of sanding, tumbling, etc.
Shapeways would probably be your best bet to get it done quickly. They will also finish it however you want them to, but it would probably be expensive to go that route. I don’t think they use Formlabs printers either.
Last I checked they didn’t use Formlabs printers. I had ordered a wax model from them about two years ago, and the quality was absolutely horrible…hence the purchase of my FL printer so I could experiment more.
I did find this on Shapeways’ site…it looks like the size is fairly small…not up on my metric system measurements, but I think 100mm is about 4":
