    When I was referring to the Romer arms, those were for the steel room floor, and their tolerances are only give or take 10 thou on some and 4 thou on others. Depends.

    you asked for A1 deviance in aerospace parts? Are you mental?

    The military once had a code they put on prints, it was MIL-TFP-41S. I meant "Make it like the fucking print, for once"

    who tf is sending you 1 GB step files? or parasolid? I call bullshit.

    I could model Georgia's new new Mercedes Dome and keep it under 2GB compressed.

    This this this. Either the part is in tolerance or it is out of tolerance. If it's in, it's good, if not....not.

    Layout as you said.

    Measuring height, relative flatness, relative distance, etc.
