Odessa American – Sept 7, 2008

Westech Seal Inc. owner Mark Merritt, second from left, recently donated $7,500 in ABS plastic materials to the Odessa College drafting technology program to be used in conjunction with the program’s educational tool, the Dimension Rapid Prototyping machine. Considered cutting edge technology, the Dimension Rapid Prototyping machine takes information directly from a drawing file and produces a fully functional threedimensional prototype from ABS plastic.
