Plane plans for foam cutter


Hello all

I have hot wire cutter made by myself.

I search on forum, but I didn't find any "schablone" or plans for hot wire cutter.

Can anyone have it. I'm not interesting in CNC(because I don't have it) or Depron...

Many thanks

Are you asking for the airfoil templates...??? not really understanding what you are asking?

look here for airfoils...just download the .gif and cut as teamplate then cut with your hot wire cutter

Yes I know for this program, but this is just for wings, I need some template for body or whole aircraft so I can cut with my foam cutter(like working devFus Foam)...

It sounds like you want plans for planes, and you want them completely ready for you to use with your hotwire cutter.

People post plans for free, but they may use a different method of cutting the parts from the plans than you use. So with any plans that you choose, you may have to do some modifications to adapt them to your application.

Choose a plane, download the plans, make any modifications necessary, create your templates, and get to cutting!
