      I saw the systems at EuroMold and was really impressed. Ali started
the bicycle model and I timed and it was really fast( if memory serves me
correctly it was 17 minutes). Each layer took about 40 seconds if I am not
mistaken and geometry complexity and or surface area did not matter. In
SLA a layer of 10" x 10" x 0.010" will take a long time (several minutes
per layer plus a extremely long z wait) with this system each layer is
approximately 40 seconds (or less, I will dig for my notes) This system
showed good side wall quality however I did not have and measuring devices
to check for accuracy and or repeatability. Feel free to call me if you
want to discuss this more in depth since I hate typing.

I agree, Sheba.
I too am a little confused about the site. Why bother to show what the
limited info that is there. It makes me believe it's like the (7000 is 4 x
faster "BS")!!!!!
