We can supply your EPP needs in sheet or block form. Give us a call and we can work thru pricing. We will eventually be adding it to the website when I get time to edit the site.

We can custom cut #1.3 and #1.9 EPP in white and black.

We have a slicing machine that can custom cut 3mm up to 1" . Slicing means there is no skin left over from a hot wire. This foam is cut cleanly with a blade.

We can custom hot wire cut from 1" - 6".

Normal sheets and blocks come in 24" x 36", however we can do other sizes as needed up to 48" x 72".

We can ship anywhere in the US and almost anywhere in the world.
The downside with shipping foam is that you are paying for the size instead of the weight. It can get expensive quick, especially when shipping over seas.

Let us know if we can help you out or if you would like a quote.

A sheet of paper and a few doodles. Once I get the overall idea as to what I want it to look like, the rest is just the TLAR method.

Although, my design criteria is all about keeping it simple. I don't even hot wire airfoils anymore, it's either flat or KFd'.

My laser is driven from CorelDraw so generally I put stuff in there so eventually it can be cut. I can output DXF/DWG or native Corel files. I can import and trace images as needed

I've got a very basic spreadsheet where I can plug in wingspan, chord, and some tail parameters and get out the maximum mass (using basic wing-loading and wing-cube loading values for the kind of plane I'm designing).
It also calculates the power-to-weight and thrust-to-weight (again using nominal values for the type of plane).
