Build Time Estimators.....

I downloaded a demo copy of MagicsRP, received demo codes the next day, loaded
13 stl files and asked it to auto-nest and set to our minimum part build Z
position. Did a great job!

I then supplied a few parameters for our SLA250 and asked it to estimate the
build time: 16Hr37mins. Actual was 19Hrs. Pretty good for a rough pass and
considering I used some old Ec and Dp values....

Must try it on the 500.

Well done Materialise - finally some productivity focused software tools.
