i think it was the same for many of you so... i am not ashamed anymore and I decided to check about the possibility
of realizing every and each idea I have no matter how crazy it might seem.
i hope you understand
I totally understand! that's why i said its nice to dream of crazy possibilities, and i did mean all possibilities.
Nobody can say it cant be done, just not that one right now.
I'm the craziest dreamer/inventor I know of, and I'm not one of a closed mind.
If anyone knew of most of my plans, they would mostly simply shrug them off as hopeless dreams.
But if it is barely feasible it is totally possible in my opinion. Far reaches and dreams are the backbone of modern inventions and discovery in physics/engineering.
And remember how VERY advanced technologies are created...All from one first thought or question. Just look at communication satellites, just one of arthur clarke's marvelous idea's year's later and put into reality.
Consider possible mechanisms to harness for wild ideas, and start postulating best case scenario's and what you would have to overcome, and the rest kinda falls into place nicely.
That thought process is the main reason I was the goto guy at techshop, I could help anyone on any level with anything. Mostly based off of conceptual analysis techniques, from which I could apply various useless knowledge, which turned out to be very useful knowledge. =)
But if you seriously want to make a arduino controlled plasma cutter for 4mm Al. then you want to look at a handheld plasma cutter and adapt it to moving rails controlled by lead screw attached to a motor driven by the arduino.
And you will be good, with mach3 software (CHEAP AND GREAT!)
Best of luck on your future ideas/projects, with an open-mind the only thing stopping you is you.
