I just looked at physical parts made by microTEC and they by far build the
smallest parts with features that I have ever seen........ Awesome!

How would you benchmark the RP systems? Right now the small feature
leaders are microTEC, AMP, Pure Fluid Magic, Ethicon, Becton Dickinson and
Molecular Geodesics. Getting a commercial entity to participate is like
asking them for the crown jewels.....

Would make an interesting study......Good luck.
