Um... because it's there.  LOL

I will have to take your word for it. I just haven't been able yet.

When I use a very large, or what I consider large, translucency number(s) the
effect again matches the real experiment but also makes the blocks too
transparent. In this case up to 20 or <20,20,20>.
I haven't tried different pigment numbers yet, and will look at the
documentation on SSLT in the meantime to see what I might have missed.
