Our EXPERIMENTAL Indirect RP process gets it done. Tools parts ready to
finish/assemble in nonferrous alloys take 3-days, or from ferrous alloys
3-weeks, from patterns in hand. As-cast tool parts tolerances are +/- 0.005
inch/inch, with 80-100 RMS, and 0.002 inch resolution.

Best Regards, Tom Richards, Metallurgist
