Great news! I always wondered about using the 3D Imager just for color. Not sure about this color scheme though, ha.
I hope it gets some of that flavor like Stramash Zone as it develops.
I like the effect on the first tube design, beginning around 1:00 in the video. I can't tell what all is going on or what's different from the others but I'm guessing that it is only that the shape is easier to see, leads the eyes more decisively since it is like a profile or horizon as opposed to a hole which could be confused for an object of that shape rather than a hole.
