Thanks for the wonderful sharing, the recent thread on tile
warpage gave me several ideas that I am looking forward
to testing when I can again. Then the fairly recent postings
on silicon also came back to me.... and I started thinking about
how silicon and paper might cause somewhat similar end effects
with regard to warpage...
Has anybody has experimented with, or would anyone be
willing to conjecture on:
What effect silicon might have on warpage in larger (15" by 18")
Could the tiles, perhaps, be made thinner than otherwise possible?
Would anyone be willing to guess what a good minimum and
maximum percent of silicon might be as a starting point?
Really looking forward to doing some nice gooey experimenting
PS I especially enjoyed the mental model of inducing "amnesia"
into the clay "memory" by dropping the tiles, so I'm wondering
if using silicon might be something like "aging" the clay memory?
