    It sounds interesting, but difficult to work with. The differential shrinkage (much more in Z than X and Y) means parts will seriously distort on firing. I suppose one can learn to compensate by scaling in the CAD software, but that sounds tricky. And the requirement of an "actively ventilated" kiln puts it out of the range of most hobbyists and studio artisans.

    You do need a kiln, but this is other than that quite accessible.
    I am also very impressed with this material.

    Here is a user guide that includes design tips.

    I love the resin! It has a learning curve to start with and isn't very dimensional stable. But there are some jobs where it worked perfect for fixturing.
