[A] Proposed technology name: L^3

A project log for SecSavr Suspense [gd0105]

The best of resin with the best of filament; is such a 3D printer possible?

Continuation of https://hackaday.io/project/184896-secsavr-suspense-gd0105/log/205183-t-technology-naming

I think I'm just going to have something that gets to the point and is easy to imagine: 

- Liquid Laminate Stereolithography (LLS or LLSL)

I could do the same strategy as BCN3D (acronym uses "lithography" instead of "stereolithography" and Stratasys (Programmable PhotoPolymerisation -> P³) to have 

- L^3 for Liquid Laminate Lithography

Looks better in marketing (P³ looks more advanced than PPP for example), but again, to get the point across, I'm likely to just say "liquid laminate stereolitho". I actually don't understand where the "stereo" part of SL even comes from, since all definitions of SL only refer to the specific art of curing a vat of photopolymer with a laser. Looking at this wikipedia page makes it seem that I could just throw anything infront of "lithography" anyway, and that might be why BCN3D has chosen to ommit "stereo" from their technology name. 

Ok. "L cubed" it is. Or is it "L 3"? I've been saying "P 3" for Programmable PhotoPolymerisation, but I say "Sol Squared" for #SecSavr Sol^2 [gd0045] and "T Squared" for #T^2 Tiles [gd0095] so I'm just being consistent.
