Powerful Water Jet Cutter Brought Down to Fab Size

Normally, industrial water jet cutters can easily run over $100,000. Adam Libert, a young engineer, led his team to design and create the first Low-Cost Water Jet Cutter at the University of Pennsylvania in 2012. His version brought that cost down to about $10,000, making it more feasible for Fab Labs and workshops to own and use.
