I am forwarding to the Rapid Prototyping Mailing List the attached
question which was posted to the Polymers Mailing List. Perhaps someone
on the RP-ML will have an answer for this question.

Best regards,

Dear Colleagues,

I am interested in stereolithography, in which a resin is photopolymerized
to prepare prototypes. Specifically, how important is buoyancy-driven
and/or surface-tension driven convection in this process?
