This is my update on an inexpensive accurate online rapid prototyping service. I got into a controversy about the word inexpensive and accurate but I have found a service to do just that. Z corp machine $12 per cubic inch with epoxy infiltration. $25 cubic inch for fdm dimension machine. The model I had made will be used to cast from.
The genius that was uncivil, said, "don't ask for inexpensive and accurate". Word of advice: business persons are only people, civility gets you everything.
If anyone can tell me the proper forum to list the contact person at the service It would be appreciated.

Are we not allowed to put contact info in any of these forums?
Contact me privately to obtain the contact person of the 3d print service, If you can't deduce it from the article.
I then bought a stratasys dimension machine that runs ABS plastic. fairly accurate, fast and fun. I do side work to help pay for the machine, but 3/4's of my parts are for me. low overhead and low prices...I am a mechanical engineer and a product designer, 28 years in the biz.
call or email if interested
