Wow..that is a really great idea Skip..as you can tell, I'm somewhat ignorant as to what these marvelous materials are fully capable of. I can see it working in my head, but now how do I get it to work in our world?
Also, do you think there would be a way to do all this, without involving solvent? by this I mean simply having the plastic react to the laser and not have to go through an additional step such as rinsing with a solvent?
A big part of the marketability would involve the ease of use, which is why I ask.
I should've also added that something like this already exists..it's called a photopolymer..unfortunately the time involved in processing really shaves away any advantage I would be able to reap in the marketplace.
