Kamesh Tata wrote and holds a patent on Adaptive slicing and I have made
many models using this software on a SLA-250. It takes less time to build
such a model since it can vary the thickness and build thicker layers when
the geometry is not changing.

Kamesh works for Plynetic Express and is on this list.
