Application: Non-flat Substrates
In Tin Model programs a substrate is represented by a series of sampling points of its surface. A substrate can be flat or non-flat with arbitrary curvatures.
A library of commonly encountered substrates can be called in the program. They include: flats, spherical, cylindrical, parabolic and saddles.
Custom surfaces (of arbitrary curvature) can be entered in accordance to an easy-to-follow convention.
Once defined, a substrate can be repositioned and tilted in the substrate carrier, as you can with a physical workpiece.
