0.9 mm. This is the minimum clearance required before parts start to fuse together so it would apply to holes as well, I would infer.

You can go as narrow as 0.4 mm for engravings, but that only allows for 0.4 mm deep.




I prefer to know nothing about everything rather than everything about nothing.
