Auto quoting RP software are really expensive now. I tried to acquire one for
my site and they said it is around 20K per year. and of course any updates or
program changes are extra. and i hate the way they suck our money like 3D
systems, buying their products, it means we have to use their support. if you
like to make changes to the system, you need to pay. I am looking into writing
my own Java code to read an STL files. afterward, i can make it public and
everyone can customize it to their own need, why pay thousands when the Java
community is so supportive to new ideas?
