    Is this using sensors to keep the welder head at a constant level? If so, very nice!

    no, it's using buttons. you cant program sensors smart enough to keep moving when something is complete

    But you can make the sensors follow you, and you can than go where you want welder to be :)

    But, you can make timers.
    Take the time it takes to weld a block, and have it move at that interval :)

    The button is to reset it but it wouldn't be hard to do it by sensor too.
