So far our results have been very impressive, I have however found that it works better
on thicker walled parts. I do mostly thin walls, things like camera frames and covers.
Although they show extreem detail and are fairly accurate compared to previous materials
the thin walls and small detail are very fragile. This is what I'm asking about. Ways to
strengthen these type parts. We had a ADVANTIX camera frame cast from a vendor who had
not worked with TrueForm PM and he was successful on his first try.

My over all experience has been great!
