    "For some parts perhaps. It's a bit of a sweeping statement to say all parts need this tolerance."

    You are absolutely correct. For a large number of parts of a camera high tolerances are not necessary, but my statement was focused on precision parts and the possibility of reproducing them using 3D printing as an alternative to machining or other precision process.

    Cheers...
