What is the goal of the upcoming Jet Fusion 300 and 500 models?

The intent is to have a lower entry, both in terms of price point and physical requirements, in order to get closer to the designers. So when there are organizations doing design, they could benefit from having this technology closer to the designers. And then one of the benefits is that the output is exactly the same [as the larger models]. Obviously the lower-end has the ability to do color -- we don't have color yet in this higher end. But the mechanical properties of the parts will be the same. That means you're designing and prototyping a technology, and you're qualifying and developing a process that you don't need to re-qualify for manufacturing. You just transfer to the same basic technology in a more industrial [deployment], which would be the 4200/4210. It basically enables you to design, prototype and manufacture in the same technology, which has a lot of advantages.
