Help with plasma cutter and complex pattern?
I have a 4' high x 2' dia. cylinder and want to cut a very complex
pattern into it? i.e. a " Decorative French Ironwork Design"? usually
when using a template with the plasma cutter I just deduct the edge of
the tip to where it cuts and am good to go? but here I am dealing with
a lot of negative space with a fare amount of detail? ? how to
transfer the pattern? I would love to create a stencil and just spray
paint it white and cut out the white, but I know that will not work so
what to do, what to do? you all have been good in the past? Michael

This is an art piece for 2 old propane tanks... actually its 2 lamps by the gate entrance to his place... he owned a propane delivery service and still does for eons. this is kind of a statement... so I have no CNC machine... I would like to job out the flat CNC get er done and weld it to the top of the cylinder... grind the weld... patina with rust... and away we go... not a bad idea !!!
