Re: Rapid Protyping and advanced mold making

The process is too slow to compete with resin and injection molded plastic
but is great for producing masters, either for resin kits or for ceramic
tooling inserts.<
I know nothing about ceramic tooling inserts however I'm wondering if
the tooling (for injection styrene) would hold up for say 500 to 1000 kits?
Is this a range to make a styrene kit (using this process) profitable?
