japanese_topThis foam pinnacle was designed in the free Inkscape vector drawing software and saved as a .DXF file in millimeters.  The .DXF vector-image was then imported into the foam cube software and copied to both cutting towers.

 

For this model the cutting towers ride in stereo, mimicking eachothers movements. Once one cut is completed the model is rotated 90 degrees and cut again. This creates a perfect pinnacle and a very solid re-usable casting mold for materials like concrete or plastics.
