Samples & Use
PlasmaCAM offers projects that you can cut on your machine.
If you want to build something but don't feel incredibly patient and creative, you can simply load a project from disk and cut it.
There is no limit to the number of duplicates you can make, provided you don't distribute the computer files to others (a violation of copyright law). You can even take pieces from different designs and combine them into a new, unique design.

- shop tools (such as a hydraulic press)
