What is the thikness of the plate to use for cutting ?

sorry about mistakes, i have edited it in SolidWorks, and converted, something about conversion is a problem i guess,

This DXF is made with too many mistakes, many open connections and repeated lines, also polygones instead of circles. My watercut master went crazy, when he saw this :)
I have refined and corrected all mistakes. Will upload soon

I plan to use this to watercut a whole torso> I hope i will work. It's cheaper, that printing torso on my Stratasys

if i change the parts i should make some hinge parts for rotating parts (like pistonbase, piv center). thin sheet metal can cut those abs parts.
but you are right if i can design and manufacture some parts in lathe, or if i can weld some pipes on it i can completely change abs to aluminum,

Hi, interesting. One question why do you need to reinforce them with aluminium plates?

What I mean is, it would be better to simply replace the plastic parts with the the laser cut plates, no?
