Paper Abstract

Optical fabrication nightmares come in a variety of forms. They are generally caused by "toos": too thin, too thick, too large, too small, too many, too few, etc. In practice I believe many optical fabrication problems could be eliminated - or at least minimized -if there were more communication between the designer and the process engineer, up front. However, since the purpose of this paper is to describe difficult items to fabricate and possible solutions for their fabrication, I will get off my soap-box and proceed to my assigned task.
