Re: Excelsior Technical Manual - Revived!

The way "industrial replicator" seemed to be used as well as things like the replicator kiosk in TNG seemed to imply there was a distinct type of replicator used to create long-term durable goods or technical items over say stuff that could be discarded relatively swiftly. Presumably such things have rather high power and maybe matter feed requirements that go beyond what ordinary replicators are capable of providing.
