I don’t know if anyone’s thought of this before, so don’t flame me if it’s old.
I realized that if you had a glass material, that behaved like glass, you could make a lens.
So I made this mesh (sorry if the images are a little big):
The three lenses have a glass-like IOR, and are clear, there’s also a plane beneath them with a screenshot of my desktop with a text document.
A view of the plane without the lenses:
Can you read what the text says? I thought not.
With the optical aid of my lenses (note: the plane is completely unchanged):
There it is, clear as day (unless you have REALLY bad eyesight.)
I want to make a microscope that looks like a microscope and also works.
If anyone would donate a microscope model that I can use, my email is [email protected].
Any questions or suggestions would be good.
