I will be putting out a new book on CNC foamcutting after New Years.

Sorry, no plans... It enables you to design a machine to suit your needs.

Scanner based? 2 Axis?

actually, i'm new to model aircraft building. i started building a 33 span blu baby model. when i cut foam i thought a CNC machine will help me. but now i understand first i must master cutting foam with hand, then learn about CNC machines and build a one which suits my requirements.
many thanks for helping friends.............
