精密, 精致, 精心 & 精细:

精密 is used to describe industry or machinery related technology and equipment. Refer examples I just added.

精致 describes workmanship or design of something that is intricate and beautiful to look at. There is a esthetic value to it.

精细 can mean "meticulous", similar to 精心, but 精细 is usually a predicate or a complement in a sentence. E.g. 考虑问题很精细。

精心 is meticulous and it's usually used as a attributive modifier, adverbial modifier or complement in a sentence. E.g. 我们精心地筹划了这次的活动。
