We are currently evaluating Magics RP from Materialise and it has a build
estimator built in (saves the trip down to the buildstation to preview)
which you can run even before you've run supports or sliced it to give you
an idea of how long the build will take. This would help in those
situations where you find out you can't wait that long for a certain part
in the build. You can easily reconfigure the build without all that wasted
slicing and previewing time. They claim it is +/- 5% in accuracy.
You can contact Materialise at:
6111 Jackson Road
Ann Arbor, MI 48103
phone (734) 662-5057
fax (734) 662-7891
I believe that they probably have a distributor in the UK also as they are
a Belgium- based company.
Hope this helps...
