What about shadow effects? How do you cure UV coat under components?

We exclusively use a printer to do glue these days but keep in mind there are times when glue and paste work best. Things like poor layout (ie shadowing) or tall parts that may shadow themselves or a wave solder machine that is not particularly good

To best visualize the factors effecting resolution, carry in your minds eye an image of a light shadow being cast on the wall using a flashlight. The size of the flashlight filament would be the analagous x-ray "focal spot" The smoothness and/or roug
