What are the tolerances to expect?
Iím a bagpipe maker researching CNC routers. Using both for the typical CNC set up and also using a 4 axis set up. Iíve got a fair bit of 3D modeling experience under my belt, so Iím not afraid of that part at all, but Iím wondering what sort of tolerances I can expect?
For a machine, I only need something smaller. For example, something like the smallest Avid Pro, or the Shopsabre 23. (Though I havenít ruled out building my own machine). When something is produced using a machine, how close to the 3D model do you get (Iíll be using very hard woods, mostly exotics like Ebony). .005Ē? .05Ē.? I realize there are a lot of factors that are involved, but Iím willing to do what I have to to get things as tight as possible.
