Suggestion for a new material

In the era of 3D printing, where layer thicknesses are measured in microns, it is ridiculous to have a material whose thickness tolerance is +/- 15%.  Yes I am speaking of laser-cut acrylic!

I suggest a "High accuracy acrylic", with thickness accurate to +/- 1%.  I would pay double for such a material!  I understand that +/- 15% is the "industry standard", but this says to me that the industry needs to change.  The first company to produce high accuracy acrylic is going to get a deluge of orders, IMHO.
