Hi-rez 3D "terracotta" printing

The folks at Shapeways -- a firm that prints your 3D models using a variety of materials and apparatus -- have a new toy to show off: an Envisiontec Aureus, which is very, very accurate -- "XY resolution is 43 micron and the Z voxel height is 25 micron." The resulting models can be plated as well.

Very high detail printing... also in wax
