Here is what the various technologies would need to do to service this trade:
ModelMakerII - Make this more turnkey and reliable.  Make the build platform smaller, like 3" cubed to bring down the price. 
Thermojet - Make a second support material that is removable
DTM/EOS/POM - Work on gold and platinum powders
SLA - Work on a more castable material
Objet - Work on a more castable material
