It's fucking awesome G, you'd shit your pants.
Came assembled and ready to go, the European distro is just up the road in Ripon. Yes materials are expensive, a ltr of goo costs about 90 quid and you need to replace the tray every 2-3 ltrs at about 40 quid, so it's about 3 times the cost of 1kg eBay filament rolls.
Quality of builds and materials are far beyond sls and objet, on par with all but the very highest res sla.
Build area is 125x125x165mm, which sounds a bit small but in reality I could never print anything like that on our fdm machine without it warping, which obviously isn't an issue with this. Also it seems to be really easy to split big bodies up and stick them together.
There are 5-6 materials including flexible.
It's about twice as fast as the old printer, at the same volume.

Cost was a big concern for me, figured it might mean running off protos would be more of a consideration and less disposable,  but it's going to replace and improve 90% of the stuff we'd have sent off and paid through the nose for, the savings on that should offset the additional cost of the stuff I would've done on the old machine.

Sounds good, but expensive. I'm only paying about 20 a kg for PLA so this is five times the price, plus needing a couple of grand to throw into the initial buy.

Always wondered what happens with the support with these? It looks like there is some being used there but presumably there are in tension to lift the part off the surface of the goo? But then how do they snap off? Do you need less?

Yeah it generates a tree like structure under (well, over) the part, it narrows down to a 0.3mm neck where it meets the surface.  You can snap it off pretty much in one lump, there are some little nipples left but they sand off easily.

Agree it doesn't make financial sense for most, but I spend a fortune on outsourced stuff and it's usually needed yesterday. I worked out it should have paid for itself in around 5mths.
