Yeah PS is a fun but yet tough program. I took 2 semesters of PS in school. I know basics and some advanced things to do with PS. Never used Illustrator and i have no idea what it is. I have heard of it but never looked into it. Volleyball and canoing are fun.

It is a large investment which required a down payment.

The resin prices vary depending on the particular resin you want. we have a number of different kinds. It also depends on which printer you have because so take the small resin cartridges and others take the large. On the low end you are looking at about $500 or so for some resin and on the high end around $1,000.

I do not recall the exact dimensions, but I think the largest object we print is probably somewhere around 2 feet by 2 feet. Pieces can be glued or fastened together though, so if you design your part right then it can be as large as you want.
I did a bit of Googling (is that a word?) and found this Engadget article.

I am so excited that this technology is becoming more affordable and within a few years may reach my price level.

Thanks for the info.

It's a vector graphics program, much like Corel Draw, that allows for the design of images that can be scaled larger or smaller without a reduction in quality or resolution, and without an increase in file size. I use it a lot in my side biz making vinyl graphics. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Once you've learned how to use it, you'll wonder how you did without. I know I do.

dang that sounds cool. my only flaw i have is that i cant draw worth a dang. i can edit photos pretty good and what not but when it comes to drawing on a pc its tough. i can draw on paper but not on a pc. Vector graphics are the ones you draw yourself right. ill go google it and see what i can find out.

Got myself another costume yesterday... I can't get enough costumes. I'm also building a Tusken Raider and have the parts for an Revenge of the Sith clonetrooper on order.

Wow, what an eclectic array of professionals we have here!! I am a retired teacher's aide in special education, 9-12 grade. Talk about horomones!! After 13 years of teenagers it is a real blessing to be able to take care of my three grandchildren ages:Tommy 3.5, Benjamin 19mos., and Jasmine 19mos. No they are not twins, my daughters had them 27 hours apart, same hosp., adjoining rooms!! During my free time I read, bake, hunt(white tail deer), go to watch my husband and son race motocross, R.V., garden, go for walks in our woods, feed the birds,...

I'm a kept woman....kept in another country right now! In the past I've worked as a performer,a writer, in property where I had a business retoring ancient buildings to the point they were mortgagable as homes, and as an equine scientist. when my DH irst converted to law I did lots of legal clerking in criminal law to get to speak legalese with him. :) My interests are a fair reflection of my careers and education really: besides homemaking, cooking and gardening I love art, literature and a variety of music, I have one horse at home with whom I'm making forrays into the world of classical dressage (a couple others out on loan), my animals are my children: dogs, cats, the horse and my chickens!, I love architecture and home design and politics.
