You would probably find my book to be a valuable reference in your
research. Also, please note that I have been interested in collaborating
with another experienced author in producing a new book on this field, since
this one came out about seven years ago. You can find information on the
book at http://www.ennex.com/Expertise/book.sht.

Subject: Tin Cup is out for textbook information
> My name is Phil Ostwald, and I am a retired professor from the University
>of Colorado, USA, Department of Mechanical Engineering. I am the author of
>two textbooks, Manufacturing Processes and Systems (9th Edition, Wiley
>Publishers), and Engineering Cost Estimating (3rd Edition, Prentice Hall).
> The Manufacturing Processes Book is the longest currently published book
>in its field, and probably 20% of the readers have had it as college text
>if they took a course in this field. The book has been translated into
>Chinese, Spanish and other languages.
> The Engineering Cost Estimating book is the leading book in this very
>narrow textbook field.
> I am starting to revise the books now, as they are out of date for rapid
>prototyping processes. Indeed, stereolithography is given only 1/2 of a
>page in the 9th edition. I am planning to enlarge it to a full chapter in
>the manufacturing book.
> I am planning to give cost models for the RP field in the cost estimating
>book. These models are very general, the sources are not stated, and there
>is always of bit of fiction for these very descriptive cost models.
> My books are characterized by references to equations, tables, and numeric
>and analytic models that relate to technical and manufacturing processes.
> With this as background I would be very grateful for information on the
>following processes: SLA, SLS, LOM, FDM, and Keltool applications:
> 1. Equations, time tables of processing time for the processes.
> 2. Flow charts of the processes.
> I am very grateful for this information. The books will be published
>within the next couple of years.
> Incidentally, look me up in Amazon.Com, and you can verify my publication
>My grateful thanks for any information.
