Magnesium Castings from STL files

From: Nick Reed (

We are loooking at getting some parts manufacured in Magnesium alloy (AZ91D
or B).
I have had some parts rapid prototyped in Al previously which was a huge
success (investment cast off of an STL or LOM wax).
I cannot locate a vendor who can/will produce Mg alloy rapid-casting. The
closest option I can come up with locally is to CNC the part which is hugely
expensive (at least from my vendor).
Can anyone reccoemend a supplier who can produce Rapid Mag casting?
(prefer Australia but SE Asia is OK. In fact given the speed of modern
mailing just about anywhere is OK)
                        Thanks Nick
