So my first print is running, and I’m finding it mesmerising to watch, and it occurred to me that I lacked a word to describe the action of the laser as it frantically draws each layer.
My suggestion is to appropriate an existing verb - I think the laser is “twiddling” each layer, the laser “twiddles”. Each layer is “twiddled” by the laser.
What do you think? Formlabs have you guys already got a verb for it?
If you hate my verb - what’s your verb? the floor is open…
Interesting verb you’ve come up with there. In true laser type fashion, I suggest “zap”. It’s “zapping” each layer, the laser “zaps”. The layer has been “zapped”. =)
Maybe they should just add a speaker to the form1 and every time the laser fires you hear the “phew phew” sound like in star wars!
Lol. I’m joking. Don’t do that! This thread is weird.
@monger - aweome XD I’ll go you one better, it should be the sound of a light sabre duel
And when it’s finished… it could play a really loud Wookie noise!
@Steven - absolutely perfect. That’d be one pimp’d Form1.
But enough with such frivolousness - this started as a serious thread - what’s the verb for the action of the laser as it scribbles each layer? I suggested “Twiddle”, Steven suggests “Zap” - what do other’s think?
From Wikipedia (and the movie “Real Genius” starring Val Kilmer):
The back-formed verb to lase is frequently used in the field, meaning “to produce laser light,”  especially in reference to the gain medium of a laser; when a laser is operating it is said to be “lasing.”
