I am on the fence. I have been using Shapeways S&F for a year now and am a click away from ordering the kit. Can anyone provide more information on;

How effective is the material sifting and recycling into new prints? Are you able to use the majority of the material? Is there a lot of wasted material?

After calibrating and set up are the prints all usable, or are failed prints possible always?

How do the parts compare to Shapeways S&F as far as surface detail? I.e. will I be able to achieve part quality as nice as the attached image? These are 1" diameter parts that have had two coats of gray primer applied.


From the images I have seen It does not look like the Sintratec printer can do this quality. I hope I am wrong.
