Hi. Yes I agree. You have to try this stuff to understand it. The really unexpected revelations of any technlogy come from understanding its characteristics without starting with a purpose or name in mind. A classic example of this is to ask someone what they can do with a brick. Most people will say build a house. But a brick is small rectangular cuboid with rough faces, possibly an indent, quite dense and made of a fairly weak bright orangey-red coloured material. These characteristics it also makes a great sanding block, doorstop, mallet, water-saver in a toilet cistern, paint pigment when ground etc. This is the same with 3D and any other tech. Study them and new facets emerge :)
