Waterjet and 3D objects

Big Blue Saw currently features waterjet cutting for manufacturing operations. Waterjets are extremely flexible tools, but can't cut slots or pockets like a milling machine. But you can use waterjet cut parts to make real 3D objects. It takes some creative design, but it can be done. The Big Blue Saw RAZR cradle is one example of how this can be done. I also recently found an interesting article which details the "Hole and Tab Method" for making 3D parts with a waterjet. Link.
