  • In Feature A, the rectangular access hole on the angled face is covered by a flat panel. That cover panel is secured by multiple bolts.

    The mating surface for the cover panel has a flatness requirement of +/- 10 mils.

  • That level of tolerance requires machining stock on the mating surface.

  • 100 mils of machine stock thickness is added around the perimeter of the access hole

Feature A requires added machine stock
