What Sparky said.

We have been doing some interesting stuff around here in foam. We are directly CNCing complex foam parts on a CNC machine and/or a CNC router table with some Z axis capability.

One model was a small EDF....did the fuse in two parts and CNCed in the perfect inlet and exhaust ducting shapes....Insert fan, wire it up and go. This made creating complexe inlet duct shapes EASY.

You might also check out "sparks" (Keith Sparks) book on building with foam. Some of his techniques could lead you to the type of shapes you are looking for.

Some have the eye to sculpt a pretty shape out of a foam block, some need a map to get there.
