We are responsible for the phenomenally popular Chicago Model City on public display at the Chicago Architecture Foundation.  The entire model all 25 feet, by 35 feet, is 3D printed - so, yes, we know about this technology. We bought our first 3D printer in 2002. 

Our machines read a three-dimensional computer file generated by us or generated by our client and processed by us. 

The Form 2 prints a 0.001” (0.025mm) thick layer and uses lasers to solidify acrylic resin, each layer fused onto the layer before it. (Stereo lithography)  Form 2 parts can be black, grey, clear or white or painted the color of your choice.  A lattice of support material is generated by the machine from the same acrylic material, so generally the parts are easy to clean and finish than other 3D printing technologies.
