Hi everybody,

I'm about to order my first parts from shapeways, if the answer to the next question is positive. Is it possible to do any milling or machining to parts created from stainless steel?

The tolerance of the 3d printed parts is unfortunately not high enough for my application. Does anybody have any experience with machining these stainless steel parts? If this is possible, is it sufficient to add about 0.1mm to the object to be able to mill it to the right size?
