If you have WWW access, most of what is commonly known about the 3D Systems
MJM process is described at the 3D Systems WWW site If
you contact 3D they might also send a brochure on the system to you.

I think that there are lots of things about the MJM system that many of us
still don't know. All I can say at this time is that the model that I have
seen is very impressive for a "desktop" modelling system. Fine detailed
features would seem to be no problem with edge definition (sharpness of
square corners) being excellent.

I recall that the price is somewhere around the $60,000USD or $70,000USD mark.
