After reading about the user part in the Rapid Prototyping report,
I called Ed and he sent me a packet with a disk containing the 
user part, some instructions, a letter, and some forms to fill out
when sending in a part to be tested.  In that packet he included
the data from a run that he did.  In there, the slice time was
reported as "5:55:30"  which I have trouble interpreting as anything
but almost 6 hours.  I can't look up the slice thickness as the
document is at work.  I do remember calculating that it would have
made 150 layers (0.010" per layer, I think).  This was almost 
2 years ago that I recieved the packet of info from Ed.
