Why does the volume or flow of abrasive through the sandcarving nozzle matter?

The greater the flow of abrasive, the higher the frictional heat, and the higher the frictional heat, the less design detail.

Macro nozzles with more frictional heat are used for high production with less design detail. Micro nozzles with less frictional heat are used for detailed design work – whether in high-production runs or one-time-only part production.
