Does anyone know anything about the build times for this machine in
comparison to a Z-Corp or Thermojet printer? With these stated layer
thickness', I'm afraid the build times would be extremely long in

Any info would be greatly appreciated,

This is correct. The machine is capable of 0.0004 inch (10 micron) layers,
but they are currently buidling 0.0008 inch (20 micron) layers to minimize
the time it takes to slice and process the data.
