Dear Yewheng,

Following are the details of few papers on benchmarking of components
from several RP processes:

Paper by Ippolito discusses manufacture and testing of bechmark
to investigate dimensional accuracy and surface finish:
        Ippolito, R., et al, 1995, Benchmarking of Rapid Prototyping
        Techniques in terms of Dimensional Accuracy and Surface
        Finish, Annals of the CIRP, vol 44/1/1995, 157-160.

The following paper too discusses a benchmark componenent which
has been designed to test the geometrical capabilities of RP

        Childs, T. H. C. and Juster N. P., Linear and Geometric
        Accuracies from layer manufacturing, Annals of the CIRP, vol
        43/1/1994, 163-166.

Kruth's paper, Material Incress Manufacturing by Rapid Prototyping
Techniques also discusses a comprehensive study of seven RP
processes to make the same part. It also discusses repetetive

Hope this will be of some help to you.
