More specifically, coming back to the 5 + 27 = 32 example, 32 is larger than 30, but only by a little. It’s smaller than 302, or 301.5, or even 301.02, which is about 32.11.

Shapeways, a 3D printing company I wrote about back in August, is introducing a new service called
Photoshaper, which lets you create a light sculpture from nothing more than a digital photograph. The process is about as simple as it could be—all you have to do is download a Java application, then follow a few short steps to create a design based on whatever photograph you want.
