  Thanks Dr. Menon. We are not at full speed yet but hope to be in the near
future. The only problem we seem to have had so far is keeping the torque
factor at a constant level. We have already gone through 2 sets of feed rollers
on the drive motors as they got worn out. Have you ran into this problem and
if so how has it been corrected besides waiting for a new set from Stratasys?
Also how successful have you been at creating thin walls and secondary
finishing (sanding, chemical)?

For the most part we have been happy we just need to overcome the learning
