Rapid tooling for high volume parts in any plastic.

Good Afternoon:

It's not additive technology and has (apparently) been available for nine
years - but a small California company may have already accomplished many of
the goals of the numerous more recently-developed rapid tooling technologies.

The company says they can provide parts in any production plastic, at tight
tolerances and any complexity in as little as 5 days with a tool life they
guarantee out to 2 million parts.

Our just-posted "Picture of the Week" feature gives more details and pictures
of parts. There are some limitations on size, optical finishes and conformal
cooling - but is there anything else I'm missing here?
