What are the “as cast” dimensional tolerances I can expect?

Typically, a linear tolerance of ± .005 inch/inch is standard for investment casting. This varies depending on the size and complexity of the part. Subsequent straightening or coining procedures often enable even tighter tolerances to be held. Advance discussion and engineering considerations on the drawings can also substantially reduce or completely eliminate previous machining requirements.
