Dear Bas

I hate to say it - but since it is a graduate report - you should be using
your own powers of research - rather than asking others to do your work!

All of the information you have asked about can be found on the net from
machine providers websites. Check out 3d systems, stratasys, etc

and

the Wohlers Associates home page - especially the press releases for that
additional professional touch to your report:

http://www.wohlersassociates.com/Press%20Releases.html

Try using Google search engine or Raging Search and you will find the info
you need - suitable i.e. for a graduate standard report.

Lazy students! (lol)
