Took a quick check back at the spec sheet for the ProJet 1500. Here's what it says in terms of size of parts/performance.

Max Build Size (XYZ) 6.75 x 9 x 8 in (171 x 228 x 203 mm)
Native Resolution (xy) 1024 x 768 DPI
Layer Thickness Standard Mode 0.004 in (102 μm)
High speed Mode 0.006 in (152 μm)
Vertical Build Speed Standard Mode 0.5 in/hour
High speed Mode 0.8 in/hour (VisiJet® FTI-Zoom material only)

And the size?  for a low-cost entry, what size part can be made with it?

@jfrisbie: You are correct and thanks for pointing out my mistake. The vertical build speed is .8 inches per hour, not .08 inches an hour.  The official spec sheet says that in high-speed mode, the unit prints at 0.8 in/hour using VisiJet FTI-Zoom material only.

What's the speed of this unit?  Is it 0.8 inches per minute?

So when do you think they will be available at Kinko's?

With a less than $15,000 price tag, aside from the slow build time, when do you think Kinko's will have them available for walk-in business like their large format color and B&W printers?

The .08 build speed refers to the vertical build speed. In this case, the ProJet 1500 builds up a 3D model at .08 inches per hour.

I believe this is .8 inches per hour.  As we run two of their older machines this would be slightly faster build rate than what we see.  Although the build speed depends on the layer resolution that you choose. I find that going from .010 layer thickness to .007 adds about 40% to any given parts build time.
