> what are the advantages of RP over a 5 axis mill? from what i've seen in the way of prices at WESTEC convention in LA a couple of months ago, it seems a new machine of either type is pretty comparable in price, with the mill having 2-3 times the work volume.

If we think about undercuts and near blind pockets, this is the only technique
available. It is a method in addition to the other method and yes one has to
work out the economics.
