[Contact][Chicago] Rapid Prototyping

Does anyone know a rapid prototype output provider in the Chicago
area. I want to have z-form and rhino files made into wax models for
casting? Thanks,Jennifer Paolinelli

Aloha Jennifer, You may want to contact Steven Pollack,in Glencoe,IL.
(http://www.xyzacademy.com), 888-300-8031. I don’t know how far
outside Chicago that is. He may be able to help you. If you don’t
specifically need it done in Chicago (which is the beauty of this
technology), I could help you. Rolf from Sanders is on this list, he
may have some one in your area as well. Let me know if I can be of

Jennifer, Iam interested in both software programs that you use I have
tried Rhino on their free download and was wondering what you thought
about the two programs and if one is more user friendly I thought
Rhino was a little tough although I did design a few pieces in a
couple of hours. J Morley Coyote Ridge Studio (former LaGrange Ill. Resident)

Mr. Morely, I designed my first vessel on Z-forms at a workshop held
at snag in Boston and am awaiting my wax model wich will then be
casted. I have a sample copy of Rhino and plan to use it shortly. It
seemed to be easier to use than Z-forms because one could look at all
four sectors at the same time. I need tofind an output source for the
wax models in or around Chicago can you help?
Sincerely, Jennifer Paolinelli

user friendly. Regards J Morley
