If I want to cut two parts next to each other, is there any issue with placing them so the cut lines are touching or sharing the same cut or do I need to offset them? Hope that’s clear. Thanks
Welcome to The Forum. @rcbran
This can be done but you would have to calculate the loss of half your kerf width on either part if you wanted to be dimensionally accurate.
Also plasma leaves a good side of a cut and a bad side of a cut so one your parts will be left with the bad side of the cut.
@wferguson has made some parts like this . He may have some words of wisdom for you.
I started out trying to cut my prodcut out of one piece of metal and wanting to keep the raw edge…but could never get things centered up right, so now i do cut down the middle of my material which leaves an edge for both pieces i want to cut…so they do end up having bevels of differing angles yes, but it saves me on material and i just build tracptr implements anyways…so not that big of a deal.
