So someone I've been chatting with about something completely
different (a NixOS port for loongson2f, and path64 compiler stuff) -
viriketo at gmail.com - happens to do 3d scanning as well.

He wasn't sure what was meant by "layer" in "200 micron per layer"
accuracy. Can someone with clue speak to that?
