Any one know of anywhere in NZ that can do 3mm steel laser cutting?

A steel I3 is appealing

I don't think 3mm is a huge ask in laser cutting terms, but that might just be because I only deal with industrial laser cutters.
Two in east Auckland I've used are
They routinely cut mild steel thicker than that for us.

I would look at water jet cutting.
I have just had some Openbeam angle brackets cut in Rotorua out of 2mm aluminium. Designing and building an CoreXY Openbeam Reprap.
You don't get heat warping with water jet cutters.
Makes excellent cuts, only thing we found that cutting small 3mm holes that the aluminium is a bit soft and it blows the hole slightly bigger on one side, doesn't happen with harder steels.
