To better understand the capabilities of the 3D printer I made this sample model that has small variations on shapes and sizes and slopes and angles...
... and I sent that to Ken. Ken's printer uses a liquid resin that is cured in place by laser beams. Ken printed it out using the finest detail possible. It took nine hours to "render" but the result is quite promising.
The spotting and ripples that appear are on the back, not on the modeled surface side, and get sanded off before the two halves are joined together.
