The RP industry is not short on claims of fast processes, low operating costs and tight tolerances. However, beyond vendor-supplied data and generalized industry perceptions, there is little information available that offers thorough comparisons of RP systems. The purpose of the benchmark study is to provide a comparison with an in-depth analysis of the technologies and processes. The list of benchmarked systems is: Z406 (Z Corp.), QuadraTempo (Objet Geometries), Dimension (Stratasys), MDX-650 (Roland DG), Viper si2 (3D Systems), PatternMaster (Solidscape) and ThermoJet (3D Systems). Data on time, cost and quality are supplied for each of the systems. Author: Todd Grimm, T. A. Grimm & Associates, Inc., Edgewood, KY.
