    Jouin on his discovery of stereolithography: “When you design an object… you will always have someone else who will come in the process and say, ‘Sorry Patrick, you can’t do it like this because our machine won’t do this.’ So I change it. I don’t want to, but I have to find a solution. Or the manufacturer will say, ‘I can’t sell this, the market will not accept.’ But this time, there is not technical constraint, an no one in the middle of the process. It’s now a pure idea; not cooked, but raw. Which is why it looks so incredible.”
