Dear RP collegue,

this is the e-mail I received a few weeks ago from Phil and David.
I know that there is a Soligen machine in France and about 20
CharlyRobotStratoconcept machines in France (Stratoconception is a process
based on cutting of sliced materials by milling or other cutting NC
processes, and assembling them ; for more information : contact me)

I think that the figgers below are from 1996 or beginning of 1997 because
in Europe, I know that there are more than 600 machines at present time.
I will send all RP-mailers all details country by country in a couple of
weeks.

Best Regards,
