I guess the important thing from the water absorption is how if at all
do the mechanical properties change from the water.
Any ideas?

We performed a simple test to determine the water absorbtion of a part
made on an Invision system.

Here are the results:

1. Initial weight 21.4 grams
2. Weight after soaking in water for twenty-four hours at 20 degrees C-
21.7 grams
3. Weight after soaking in water for forty-eight hours at 20 degrees C-
21.8 grams
4. Weight after soaking for a week was the same as for forty- eight

If anybody else has performed similar measurementss, please send us an
