I have had some benchmark parts made with the 3D Systems Invision printer and have been very impressed. I even had one part with supports left on the part and they melted right off with no problem. Model quality and detail is great as well. I would say the Viper is superior because of the material choices vs. the Invision currently only has one material. I was able to paint my model and also use it as an RTV pattern as well.

Hello List,

Has anyone out there seen parts from the 3D InVision printer that just
started shipping?
How well do they compare to in resolution to .. lets say a viper in hi-res
mode? I know... different technologies.......
What about surface finish of the parts? Anyone touch / feel parts? ( I
missed the last RP get-together. )

What foreseeable impact do you see from this "desktop" / "office" in-house
solution to 3D models?

Just Interested in what other folks out there see and think.
