The waterjet we have specs out at +/-.005" on size. If need be we can get that down to +/-.003". Our machine is also equipped with a "tilting" head which with the advanced cutting software and if need be manual adjustment, we're able to remove most of the taper you're talking about. We call that taper "kerf".
A waterjet's smoothness and straightness of cut is also unreal, but of course without any heating of the material being cut.

"Kerf" was the word I couldn't think of. Thanks.

sorry if it was covered

I am in process if learning some CAD basics.
I am wondering does it matter if I chose metric units instead of imperial for my CAD blade design?
In other words if the dwg file is in mm will you be able to use it for waterjet or it has to be in inches or it does not matter?

Millimeters or inches...does not matter. Conversion between the two is easily done in most CAD programs. A little hint though....include some type of "scale" so we can make sure the file imported properly. For example, next to your blank draw a 1" square (properly labelled as such) so we have a reference.
