    You should set up your customer portal from Rolf. It should have all the tech specs there https://shop.rolf-spectacles.com/en/Account/Login call your rep. I'm not 100% certain if it's the same for the titanium collection but the regular one is 1mm wide and 0.5mm deep.

    Hey Oscar we are set up with Rolf portal it doesn't have the titanium specs and the site they set up for the new line has no content available for some reason, I grooved it to the other specs seems fine, thanks for the reply anyway. Cheers

    The optical shop I cut for carries all of ROLF's lines: wood, horn, and titanium. I've found that the recommended specs (1.0 mm width and 0.5 depth) for the regular wood ROLF's work just fine across the board if taken with a grain of salt. The factory recommended parameters are based on the calibrations for ROLF's personal lab machines which WILL vary from your own! My personal experience is that the most important part is actually getting the right lens thickness. ROLF recommends at least a 2.2 mm lens thickness (but I've used less - just more of a headache)
    Hope that helps,
    Andrew
