Here is a 50% scale flexure (.010" beams, .015" gaps) machined from .020" thick Aluminum 2024 sheet using a .015" diameter end mill with amorphous diamond coating (<a href='http://www.harveytool.com/ToolTechInfo.aspx?ToolNumber=72015-C4'>Harvey Tool 72015-C4</a>). This took about 8 minutes, but I think could be run faster.
