This is turning into quit a conversation. I hope we can meet at the
Usergroup meeting and talk . You may not have been involved long enough to
know this, but Dupont is a member because the own a SLA 250. They also were
a supplier on resin for a while and tactually may still be. As far as I
know any third party vendor that has been invited was always in some way
related to Stereolithography by means of secondary processes or CAD related
in some way. Let ask you some questions if you don't mind. Do you have
some other technology at your site that not represented by its own
usergroup ? If so what is it? Have you participated in any business
meetings at any of the meetings you have attended? Have you attended any
meetings? If you have I don't understand your questions because you would
know why it was formed and what its mission is. Then again if you have not
I can understand.

Does anyone out there share my oppinion or am I out of line here?
