Hi Len it was a great show and great to see you again, thank you for sitting and getting to know you a lot more as I know we don't get that much time like that at GSL.

See you in Salt Lake or maybe sooner as I'm really going to try and make it down to Texas for a show soon.

Here are a few things that I have drawn and printed here at IRC 3D Imaging and in the last 6 months we have been able to get the machine work a lot better with some new programing and made a big brake though to do scrip lettering in .1x.3 mm high resolution for detail that other company's are still trying to figure out with out doing them in SLA machine.

For doing stuff in 3d in as smooth as resin parts you will pay more for the machine time it takes and also what it takes to draw out the part for the stl programs. So doing casting g is the cheapest way to go in the long run. Like it has said 100 times all ready the videos you see have been time inhance as to do eeven a 1/24 scale valve cover at .008mm high resaloution it takes more then 4hrs toprint just one part.

For thinking about going to use the nice little makerbot at your local library they can only do .2mm red and that very poor quality to try to sell to the public and more detail is lost because of this issue.

Now if you are a resin caster and want to have the masters done the price for either abs in .080 or .008 or even in stainless steel at .1 or .050 then you would make your money back but I do not seeing a ton of you people paying for this machine to do stainless steel or even a machine to run abs under .1mm

It ended in Michigan last year in Grand Rapids and was in Detroit back in 03. I have done the long trip once and would like to do it again some day
