Dear Pof. Phill Dickens:
I am very interesting to your work about the Quikcat. Would you please
Email a copy of this article to me. I have a SLA250 and I want to do some
rapid casting work with it.
I want to spray some low melting point metal to the part made from
Quickcast. I do not know if there will be any trouble. What about the
high melting point metal?

Thank you for your help.
