Re: Brent's DropLit Projector Calibration

Brent, I just created a pdf set of test 9 patterns that are 3" x 3". I don't have a projector yet, but I felt these might be useful for both setting the Zoom while open and setting the focus on the printer. As long as the PDF's aren't rescaled (ie "fit the page"), any of them sho...
