Who is JJG ?
What is you e-mail address ?
Please take away your mask (too many secrets ...) !

On 10th and 11th I have been at the Rapid Product Development Conference
in Stuttgart, Germany.
Prof. Osorio from INET, Lisboa, Portugal, gave a very good presentation
about stereolithography build time calculation (in this case for the EOS
Stereos 300). For a precise time calculation (about 2 percent deviation),
he analyses the stl file with a simple c program to gain the part volume
and surface.

That is all I know. For details you better ask A. Osorio at
