My question is, how are you going to maintain 1536 jets???
I have a MMII that is difficult enough to keep two jets functioning
Or maybe these "nozzles" are a different design altogether. But I still
think it would be necessary to calibrate them for proper alignment and
material flow? I can see the nightmares of faulty or plugged "nozzles"
But at the same time I am also looking forward to seeing it at the upcoming
show in Rosemont, hopefully they will be able to answer all my questions.

        My big question is, do they have, or plan, a material that burns

        That's the second question - that case is mighty sleek looking, but
        what's the MTBF? It seems like a lot will depend on how they handle
