Oh Wow: Watch A Bunch Of Metal Shapes Milled So Perfectly They Fit Together Without A Seam

March 29, 2019

This is a video of a bunch of examples of the incredibly precise machining performed by Jingdiao Precision Machinery's CDC (Computer Numerical Control) equipment, which can allegedly achieve resolutions of 0.5 microns, so fine that two pieces machined from different blocks that were designed to fit together will do so without a visible seam. Impressive. I just wish my doctor had the same precision, and maybe I wouldn't-- "Look like Frankenstein's monster?" Well I was going to say have an improperly set wrist that aches every time there's a cold front coming, but thanks. Remind me to give you a call the next time I need a pep talk before a date so I can just cancel.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Rob W, who informed me he's really into jigsaw puzzles. Awesome, I'll give you a ring the next time I get sunburned on vacation. And to William T, for setting the record straight.

    You know they are going to use those parts to make a gundam

    Yet we still can't put metal in a microwave.

    All that technical prowess and they still somehow filmed using vertical video...

    Am I the only one who keeps hearing them *just almost* play Zelda's Lullaby? They keep hitting a few notes that I keep expecting to continue into the rest of the theme, but then they wave off. Kind of frustrating!

    This has been one of the most impressive things I've seen in a while! Thank you!

    This is not EDM. The video is by Jindiao Precision Machinery, a company from China making CNC machines and software. Their website http://www.jingdiao.com/en/... claims that their CNCs can achieve resolutions of 0.5 micron, which could, as the video shows, make parts seem seamless when mated together. EDM does not create polished surfaces. Polishing to a mirror shine thereafter will inherently create visible gaps.

    This is not EDM. It's light pop.

    Genuinely cool. I was a bit disappointed by the one shot where there's a close-up angle being filmed in frame, but we never get to see that close-up.

    oddly satisfying
