Hello All,

I have a couple of questions for the users out in the real world in regard
to the Z402 3D printer from ZCORP. We are in the process of evaluating this
piece of equipment and any input would be greatly appreciated.

1) If you have one, how long have you had it and has it been a
dependable machine. Does it tend to break down and if so, how often
does it go off line.

2) How many hours/day do you run it and does it hold up well to being
run 24/7 for a give period of time.

3) What is the maintenance for the machine like, how often do the print
heads need to be replaced and is it a pain.

4) How would you compare it to the 3D systems wax printers.

5) What are your impressions for the secondary operations to the parts
and can you use the green parts straight out of the machine for
casting models, etc...

Thank you for your time,

David Grelewicz
