    Is there a table with tolerances for Strong & Flexible Plastics (White Polished)? For stuff like rotating parts, clicking a two part housing together etc?

    If you're creating the model as one part with the moving parts built in, only the parts that can be reached by the polishing 'stones' will be polished - there's a video showing the polisher in action at 3D model polisher in action/

    There's some different tolerances for polished compared to plain S&F, mainly the wire & wall thicknesses and the max size 15 x 15 x 15cm
    Strong & Flexible design guidelines

    For moving parts, there's the advanced tutorials.
    Advanced: Designing mechanical parts, part I
    Advanced: Designing mechanical parts, part II

    And an overview as to hoe S&F performs at different printing sizes.
