RE: Accuracy parts

Dear Chris, and all:
We have recently started a European thematic network on the incorporation of new technologies (Rapid prototyping, simulation and recycling) to the precision foundry industry. We are 26 people from different European countries. One of the objectives to meet in the network is to define a reference component to check different aspects related to the RP models (accuracy will be one of them for sure), and their use in investment casting. We have not started this work yet, and I would like to base our efforts in the work that has already been done, specially if this is widely accepted.
I would like to ask all of you who have already been developing/using a reference component to please contact the forum...or to me, to see how many possibilities there are and if we can approach a common reference component.
Happy new year

Dear List
Can anyone point me in the direction of STL files for the measurement of the accuracy of RP processes. I have copies of Christmas trees for SLA and SLS but not for other processes or for accuracy studies completed else ware. Following conversations with Prof Alain Bernard of IRCCyN we think it would be a good idea to have an accessible location for such information perhaps on one of the excellent websites serviced by members or maybe even on our site here at Liverpool.
Best regards
