Over the weekend I had the time to start testing the latest batch of photopolymer from Polygrama and I have to tell you that it was a pleasure to work with. But let me back up a bit and take you to the beginning of the testing session.
If anyone’s interested in checking out the first fully functional (although as far as the final version goes, proof of concept) version of HoloController, I’ve just made a source and executable release through sourceforge.
A few months ago I bought some hardware for interfacing my computer with the outside world along with a relay card and stepper motor card.

While elements of it worked well in a transmission, the contrast levels weren’t good for making reflection copies. As soon as I get the chance I’ll post some pictures of my latest work.
In the meantime, check out the Liti review I’ve just posted.
