Why are you targeting me on this thread? I do not remember whether I chimed in on Elon’s email but I wonder how he can call for micron-level design and build when the parts have long been designed. They either work, and fit, or they don’t, and an email like this seems very odd indeed.
People ‘that’ anal don’t deserve a truck.I can only hope/assume this is a joke, but after serving years of crazy Model 3/Y delivery stories, extensive checklists and similarity psychotic behavior you never do know.
But really if you show up with calipers I kinda hope/expect you to get stabbed with them.
Press “brake” you mean, but that is a good question. My guess is that, after a lot of experimentation, they can dial in the bend and strain relaxation to very tight tolerances. Just what that tolerance might be I don’t know.I just don’t think press-break formed SS sheets can achieve those levels of sub-10 micron tolerances …
But would love someone with experience to weigh in
Um.... That is pretty small. Hope people don't misinterpret the shirt and think you are talking about your personal measurements.Sounds to me he is talking to everyone as a whole..but at the end of the day it's the body panel ppl who's job is to manage them gaps. When he said hard to build he prob means this. I need a Tshirt that says:
< 10 MICRONS
two out of three ain’t bad (re my recent spellings of brake)Press “brake” you mean, but that is a good question. My guess is that, after a lot of experimentation, they can dial in the bend and strain relaxation to very tight tolerances. Just what that tolerance might be I don’t know.
I happen to agree but, just as importantly, I cannot see it being necessary in gap instances. As long as drag turbulence isn’t out of spec it should be ok. I just wonder why he made such a statement this late in the game. Maybe what someone else said about him sitting in the RC truck and noticing these things made him comment and he just went overboard. We will probably never know.two out of three ain’t bad (re my recent spellings of brake)
I’m also sure they can dial in the bend and strain relaxation to very tight tolerances
But to the width of a red blood cell?!?
id be interested to learn of any stainless sheet stock meets those tolerances in any application, much less automotive body panels!
not because I’m knowledgeable enough to doubt, but just because it doesn’t compute
