With proper thermal mixing, large-inventory dies are not necessary and the ID waviness can be largely eliminated.
We measured the waviness index for IM-3 collagen fibers sampled from near the outer surface of the mantle wall and from near the inner lumen surface (in a zone about 10% of the mantle thickness for each) for both contracted and hyper-inflated mantle tissue (Fig.
Analysis of waviness of formed surfaces showed that there is a possibility to produce moulds and prototypes of high surface quality.
In material science, the microstructure of machined surface topography, as a non-stationary random process, is a characteristic of paramount importance for the study of contacting surfaces and it can be generally characterized by three statistical characteristics: texture, waviness and roughness (4).

Symptoms of AMD include progressively worsening vision, contrast sensitivity abnormalities (for example, having difficulty reading in low light), waviness of vision (called metamorphopsia), and missing some areas of vision (called a visual scotoma, like looking at a picture of someone's face in which the nose or mouth is dark or missing).
