To the world.......

My questions seems simple enough but everyone seems to approach it
differently. Is there a perfect solution to:

Calibration or tuning RP systems for accuracy and repeatibility?
Time required to tweak a RP system and how often?
Operator skill required to produce a model?
Training on the job or vendor class?
Which area guarentees great models: the RP operator , CAD designer, and
post postprocessing?

As the need for accuracy increases due to the requirements for tooling and
castings.....the need for perfect machine operation rises. If a RP
machine requires fine tuning each week.....does this hurt or help the

Just wondering,
