Unfortunately, that's not quite good enough (different units).
0.01 inches = 0.254 mm, which is 2.54 times the required size:

0.1 mm is approximately 0.0039 inches.

I have a question, though - is this precision required for making *any* 
well-working case design (due to the electronics etc.), or is it just 
for making more of the current case design?

If it's the latter, it would be possible to create a new case design 
that would be easier to get manufactured...
