    I can't say much about slot and tab panels, but I've found that the dimensions on my watercut wedge/flipper are at max 0.7mm greater than I expected them to be. Most of the dimensions are about 0.5mm greater.
    Also, yeah for smaller holes like 6mm, I would make them a bit larger. I would maybe go 6.5mm - 6.8mm? I can't say for sure, but I made all mine 6mm in my CAD and the bolts didn't quite fit.
    A 10mm hole should be fine at its normal size - is this for a bolt or a rod?

    CAD is looking very nice!

    Yeah all my holes for waterjet are 1mm bigger than required so they are a good clearance fit. The tolerance is caused by the kerf of 0.5-0.7mm for 4mm thick steel. If its thicker you might need more clearance. If they are too small you just ruin a bunch of bolts. Small holes tend to not be very round (<5mm).

    Oh ok, so I think I'm on ball with tolerances from what you've said. Thanks
