I immediately thought of this as a great way to make heat treatable castings for PSRUs or prop mounting gear train stressed covers.

I've used thixatropic molding for decades. Lower drop. Better tolerancing. Far smaller vendor base, however.
What is your take on the differences between
thixocasting and this simpler alternative "rheocasting".
And what specific atributes do you get from
thixotropic molding? are you heat treating the parts?
