Dear Ed and the list!

This might be too old a thread to continue, but I'll still add this.

Conductive polymers like polyolefins can be printed with epson printers becasue they use piezo, not heat to dispense the droplets.

Work in printing conductive polymers is being done by a relatively small group of scientists who are not that familiar with RP.

The link between printing a conductive ink and RP is so obvious that I suppose most anyone of this list would make the connection if presented with printing technologies.
