Bacon bottoms originated with a waffling of the bottom surfaces on an SLA
model, usually a large flat surface. It has re-appeared with the new
release of Maestro. The new appearance does not look as much like bacon as
the original instead has the appearance of texture. Mine kinda looks like
a printed circuit board with ridges, cross patterns, and some nice clear
areas. It looks user defined. Instead it has to do with the cross hatch
pattern and cure depth. It also now appears on top as well as bottom.

Opinions, suggestions, and other controversial matter VOID where prohibited.
