Is this really all that new though? Haven't rapid protyping machine tools been around for awhile? I mean, Bathsheba (http://bathsheba.com/) has been using them to make complicated art for a while now. Is it the kind of part or small size that is unique with Eoplex?

Al,
Thanks for the comment. EoPlex uses a layered approach that is much more like semiconductor deposition than RP. The EoPlex process deposits various ceramic and metal powders in ink form to build panels of complex 3-D parts and then sinters the entire stack to form the channels, conductors, insulators, catalysts etc. The process is unique and addresses market needs that can't be done with RP. More information can be found at www.eoplex.com
