The EOS materials can only be printed using thier machines.  They are definately commercial scale machines, competing with Objet.

Just read an article today elsewhere about the expanding 3D printer market. The gist of it was that a main area of expansion will be manufacturing contract shops that would invest in the printers and materials and then become the go-to place for people / companies that have the need but not the resources for the equipment.  Sort of like a Kinko's / contract manufacturer combo.  It seems like this would be a good product for a business like that.

Only $675,000? I will probably pick up three or so after my next paycheck.

The more durable plastics for 3D printers--used for auto and airplane parts, for example--generally go with the higher-end very expensive machines, since they're aimed at industrial apps, not at individuals or prototypes.

Perfection is a laudable, but ultimately unattainable, goal, even for the world's most successful consumer electronics company. You know the hits; here are Apple's all-time greatest misses.
Siemens' new version of Imagine Lab was designed to help the automotive and aerospace industries meet environmental mandates.
Belden and Secomea have developed a remote access system that gives users a plug-and-play connection to plant assets.
Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
