Dear Santosh,

Recently the US consultant Todd Grimm published a Benchmark
of a few RP systems including one based on CNC milling.
See http://www.tagrimm.com/benchmark/index.html

Also on our website you can find a few articles on the comparison
between additive RP (stacking layers) and subtractive RP (machining):
see http://www.deskproto.com/download/articles.htm
