+1

i went to fill out the survey, but found the questions sort of hard to answer considering i don't know much about them or their capabilities at this point. i mean for me to spend a couple thousand $$ on one of these ...i'd have to make a ton of different tools etc to recover that cost. and how much would the "patterns" cost for such items and the plastic/resin cartridges used?? just too many unknowns for me at this point to adequately participate in the survey.
