Quoted from rotordave:

Send your file to my old mate Tim MezelMods and see what he's got to say.
He's got a pretty swish 3d printer.
Oh, sell me your SS as well, my mate is asking about it again.

You betcha! We have the capacity to print it, today!

Quoted from Aurich:

Hey Tim be happy to talk to you more about it, you didn't answer my last PM about the best email address to use. Get back to me, I've already started my own 3D sculpting!
I'm not sure 3D printing is the right answer for a "mass produced" version, I think casting is the only way I'll get something I'll be happy enough with the surface detailing, talking to some people about that already. I'm picky about things my name is attached to. But my plan is to 3D print armatures to sculpt over, and I'll need someone who can handle doing enough to cover this list that keeps growing.
I'm already at more than I had planned on making, but we'll see if everyone still wants to stay in when I PM the details.

Added. I'll commit to doing enough for everyone who's on the list, but then I'm gonna say that's it for these hand made ones.

Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:

You know if your buddy is doing the molds? What about Tim at mezelmods, he picking this up? Also I like your shooter rod, are you gonna do more of those? I just thought I ask. Your work is amazing!!

We have been thinking about do this...gotta find the time.

Quoted from Aurich:

Tim and I had originally talked, but I wasn't happy with 3D printing as the final solution, casting has a much better level of detail.
Tim, you're looking into adding casting to your shop though right?
As for the shooter rod, that was just a personal one off, no plans to make more. Someone else has a kind of similar one, with a skull/piston hybrid, you could look at getting one of those.

Yes, casting, roto mold or injection molding is the only way I would do it for this piece.
