I actually had some samples of Evergreen sheet cut on a waterjet, and all I can say is, it ain't pretty. Waterjets are used to cut hard materials. Styrene isn't that hard, and just kind of shreds.

Harder materials can be cut (*), but they are not the exclusive application for WJC. Diapers, fabric blanks for clothing, foam, and carpet (Did you ever see an intricate logo or emblem in the lobby of a hotel or business?) are among the many "soft" things it is used for.

(IIRC, really hard things like ceramics can't be cut because of surface fracturing or something.)
