Dear Pedro,

As far as I know, you won't go very far below 0.1 mm accuracy with rp
systems (please let me know if i'm totally wrong !!!) such as SLS.
Again, if what you need is a PA prototype for function test, SLS is the
right method. Even better would be to make a prototype mold (by SLS) and
inject the prototype part ("production prototype"). If it's just for
assembly testing, i'd say SLA is a good choice...
