250 (multicolor) are easy to use out of the
box; build 3-D models with five times the resolution; and have the industry's
lowest operating cost (lowest cost per model). They print five to 10 times faster than other 3-D printing technologies, with
the ability to print multiple, stacked models simultaneously.
150/250 specifications include:
Resolution: 300 x
Size: 0.016 inch (0.4 mm)
Speed: 0.8 inch/hour (20 mm/hour)

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
