We can imagine that by now you are curious to see some products made with the foam cube. While engineering focus was first and foremost on machine design we did create some simple products to test and demonstrate the machine.
The french lilly’s very recognizable shape was imported as a .DXF file into the CNC cube software and then copied front-to-back to make both sides of the machine mirror eachother.
As a matter of testing the machine we decided to put a full pack of styrofoam panels into the machine and turned it on. The pack was held in place purely by it’s own weight as the hotwire never pulls or pushes on the product.
As you can see on the pictures this is a very easy way to create a lot of similar products in a very short time. The hotwire is only 0.3 mm. in diameter, and with the correct speedsettings it’s easy to have it make a very narrow kerf and tight corners.
