The Genisys is a single jet - better, a single head - which extrudes the
matarial. Actua has 96 jets that lay down the material. Actua will be
significantly faster on "full builds" - the two will be about the same on
individual parts.

Supports are the made out of the same material the parts are made from and
are easily removed from the bottom facing surfaces.

Hope it helps -
