     I think a related area of interest would be to study how smooth a
surface it is possible to achieve with RP technologies. I have seen parts
made from epoxy that have flat smooth surfaces. It would be interesting
to see if the image of a sphere or lightbult could be made that was as
smooth as a glass sphere or lightbulb. Another test would be to see if RP
technologies could make a part that had the same surface texture as a
piece of oak. Results of such research shuld be very touching. Have a
great day.
