Tolerance in MeshCAM V7

Postby Russell » Thu Jul 20, 2017 8:36 am

I am machining some very small parts for a robot hand and find I need to set tolerance to it's minimum value for good results in V6. I use metric but the minimum tolerance seems to be 1/1000th of an inch (0.003mm).
Recently I looked at the beta for V7 (build 4) and noticed that the minimum tolerance had been increased to about half making it completely useless for making my smallest parts.

Can the tolerance be changed to 1/1000 of a mm? Although my machine is not that accurate it would allow MeshCAM to define small details better and prevent it ignoring some that are almost as small as the tool diameter.
