CNC foam cutter project


Stumbled across this and thought it might be of some interest here. Looks very simple and very cool.

I saw that pop up on the net last week.

Of course I DL'd the files.
BG is currently out of stock on the Heat controller.

The "howtomech" stuff generally has appeared to be a bit "light weight" , sorry.

I was actually more interested in what SW they were going to be using.
The machine parts are easy,
It's the HOW TO USE IT part the is generally the more complicated stumbling block.

Not sure if I want to start another big Project just yet,
since I already have two 3DPrinters and a CNC machine

But, I will be watching.

PS

There are several other similar threads.
This one looks promising as it matured over nearly 5 yrs
Look to the end for the latest mechanical design improvements.
