A company I am working with is considering purchase of a Stratasys. If you
are using this system in house or through a service bureau, please send me
your comments on it. Mainly interested in ABS material. Specifically,
what is the actual experience you've had in terms of throughput; what is
the threshold at which it makes more sense to bring the machine in-house
versus going to a service bureau; and what are the going rates for service
bureaus assuming you are provided with an stl or iges file? Solicitations
welcome also. BTW, I've gotten the ROI / sales stuff from Stratasys.

Thanks in advance.
