Thanks to Todd for at least adding to the public knowledge by posting a
but very useful pointer for SLA work.

To the boneheads who flamed him:

Next time read the entire original message where he clearly stated that he
placed the goo ball in the PCA, cured it, and then threw it away. Anyone who
had any experience with SLA work (aside from reading a book or subscribing
this mailing list) would know that this is the environmentally friendly way

Todd, and others who may want to be of help to the community, please don't
this discourage you.

   Thanks Michael for saying it first!! I feel that the level of useful
suggestions for SLA or any other technology submitted to the mailing list is

well-intentioned information. Regardless of the content of the actual
posting, lets try to be objective and professional about ideas or

   With regard to Todd's actual suggestion, I completely agree that it is an
effective way to manage extraneous photopolymer from the platforms and parts
