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.
