12 to 18 month outlook on fabber technologies

Dear RP-ML,

    Our investors are asking us to expand the discussion of competition
in our business plan by predicting where the other fabricator makers
will be, not just today, but a year or 18 months from now. Telling the
future is always tough, but it's harder than usual for me here because I
of course have a bias that wants to see the advantages of Offset
Fabrication remain strong. So let me put the question to you experts on
the mailing list.

    What improvements would you expect to see becoming available in the
next year or two from 3D Systems, Stratasys, Z Corp., Sanders, and other
fabber vendors in terms of:

            -- How much faster?
            -- How much more accurate?
            -- How many more and better materials?
            -- How much better surface finish?
            -- Multi-color fabrication?
            -- What cost for machines and materials?
            -- Easier-to-use and more office-friendly systems?
            -- What else?

    Thanks for your help. The best answers will receive a special
invitation to the launch event of the Genie Studio Fabber.

Best regards,
Marshall Burns
