4-Axis CNC Hot-wire Foam Cutter

I saw this design idea pop up in my instructables email newsletter today & I thought it looked very interesting.


I saw that the other day. Pretty interesting concept. It seems like it needs some work on the software to get some more interesting projects finished though.

I could have used that back in college when I was trying to build a foam core and fiberglass RC airplane.

There’s a good thread on the FliteTest Forums (where I learned about the MPCNC originally) where someone built and is using one. He’s got some good info about the software toolchain for cutting wings with it: https://forum.flitetest.com/index.php?threads/rc-keith-cnc-hot-wire-build-log.53534/
