Dear listmembers and owners of Z-corp 3Dprinters,

We at IceTec have a Z406 colour 3Dprinter from Z-Corp.

We noticed that the prices of supplies have gone up
more than 33% when we recived our last order.

We got no explaination from our distributor and would
therefore like to ask if anyone of you, who have Z-Corp
3D printer, have notice similar rise in price of supplies?

We pay 772 USD / 595 Euros for 500 cubic inch bin
of z102 plaster powder (1.55 USD pr. cubic inch)

We pay 615 USD / 474 Euros for 1 gallon of ZB56
clear binder.

When you add the cost of printheads , 90% recycling
of powder and cost of washing fluid, then the
material cost per cubic inch, far exceds the 1 - 2 USD
pr. cubic inch, which Z-Corp advertise on its webpage

I would appreciate if anyone of you could inform me
of the material prices you are paying in your country.

Thank in advance
and best regards,
