High precision systems need all the help they can get to attain peak accuracy. Adding flexures within brackets is one way to do this, so that components can properly align after assembly and/or compensate for thermal expansion through clever design. 

One reason the use of flexures is not commonplace is because they can be difficult and expensive to make using traditional manufacturing methods. This application brief discusses how additive manufacturing makes the production of flexures attainable, along with a clear explanation of the flexure manufacturing workflow and best practices.
