Hey, don't get rabid on these guys just yet.

This technology is very innovative. I think they are overwhelmed with hits
on their web site and e-mail inquiries.

>From my conversation with Objet at NDES, they are still 4-6 months away from
having a unit for sale. Investment casting applications may be the last
thing on their mind right now. That question may not be answered until a
user gets hold of the system.

I can tell you the resin system is an acrylate, so you tell me, do acrylates
burn out?

I asked them weeks ago for samples to test precision cast from and have not
had the courtesy of a response from them.
