Hi Andrew,

I am wondering why you would prefer a SLA machine over, let's say, a Dimension machine from Stratasys?

  Well I give! It may just be time to give in and buy an SLA machine like
  everybody else!

  Primarily to add another process to our shop and possibly speed up the
  CAD->RTV-> cast urethane process.

  From what I've seen/heard of others systems a 250 would probably do the
  trick for us.

  However since it's an older machine the 3D systems site no longer has

  Any info people in RP land could impart upon us before purchase would be

  Build envelop
  build speed
  Difference between models
  software limitations
  Maintenace Nightmares

  Etc. etc....

  I know there is an awful lot them kicking around out there so I'm certian
  the knowledge pool is deep enough for me to drown in!

  Any help is apreciated!

  PS If you've got a machine you're looking to off-load let us know
