Wazer desktop waterjet cutter

How many robots would you have to build for a $5000 home waterjet cutter to make sense?

Infinite( or a very large amount) the consumables cost is super expensive and it's really slow. It'd be cheaper to farm it out unless it is for like one part at a time

A plasma on the other hand...

Slow isn't the big deal if you're doing it for yourself. In the end , it's just a machine running in the background.

But if slow also equals powerconsumption you'll have to get creative calculating the total setup.

On the other hand, if I look at the capacity of the waser, I'm going to farm out my stuff.
4.5mm Ti at max, with a low resolution and wide tolerance.
