We found a huge rock and decided to cut in our go to shape. The thing i love about the waterjet is its like laser cutting, but instead of a laser, you’re cutting with water. Water agains rock is just like extreme erosion, its how the grand canyon was shaped, just much faster.

If you like’d cutting a rock with water you’ll love our other ridiculous and fascinating videos. A water jet cutter, also known as a water jet or waterjet, is an industrial tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.

The term abrasive jet refers specifically to the use of a mixture of water and abrasive to cut hard materials such as metal or granite, while the terms pure waterjet and water-only cutting refer to waterjet cutting without the use of added abrasives, often used for softer materials such as wood or rubber.

Waterjet cutting is often used during fabrication of machine parts. It is the preferred method when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods. Waterjet cutting is used in various industries, including mining and aerospace, for cutting, shaping, and reaming.
