Material Strength - Actua

Dear Listing:

Seems like one of the best attributes of the Actua concept modeler has
always been feature definition. One of the concerns has been material
strength. Now you can get the great feature definition with acceptable
material strength by using a spray called: "Plasti-Dip." A coating of this
spray will make the parts surprisingly strong. They can even be dropped
without breakage.

Actua users - has anyone tried this yet? Plisti-dip is found at most all
hardware stores, but not in the paint section. IT's normally found in the
tools section as the product's purpose is to coat your tool handles.

Any feedback? Seems like a good short term solution while new materials are
being developed for Actua.
