I can’t be the only one who feels the need to make parts out of something cheap and more available to check dimensions, etc, can i?
What’s everyone using to do first runs and make sure everything comes together like it’s supposed to? I have access to a big woodcutting CNC, so i thought of prototyping out of 3mm MDF, which i have in abundance, but i’ve recently found out about Aluminum trim coil, and was wondering if that’s something which is conducive to plasma cutting? Seems cheap and should be good enough to mock up things which can later be cut out of thicker sheets?
Or do i need to just get with the program, suck it up and stock up on the materials i plan on making things out of?
