I used to work as a millwright, installing heavy machinery. It could take days to grout the floor and shim a machine so that the ways ran true. It even came down to having a conditioned space, if the accuracy requirement was high enough. Try leveling and truing the ways on an 18’ lathe bed, when the roll up door is open, where the machine and the concrete shift from the change in temperature from one end to the other. EVERYTHING flexes; it’s just a matter of degree.
