Thanks to all for the expertise and assistance.


I've got 4" x 5" x 5" envelope parts.

Can I go wrong with the equivalent of a Maximum Chordal Deviation - for
a file set in mm - of .1?

My understanding is that this is essentially .1 mm. Do I need to go to
.01 mm if I want high resolution parts?

I'd like to get this one right as they are all moving downstream and I
don't want to have to walk it all back.

Most Sincerely,
