    Re: scratch building

    RT,
    Here is a picture of the 3D foam cutter I have at work. Notice it has a turn-table style base and a lathe on the vertical wall. We can program 3D art to it and the hot wire travels along the outer cage in the shape you program.

      Look at all the "scrap" EPS (expanded Polystyrene foam) in the back. We usually have to pay somebody to haul it away. We mainly use the cutter for cutting out monuments like the one in the picture. The hot wire cutter is for sale. Everything, even the computer and software is included.

        Re: scratch building

        Just send me a bunch of scrap foam that can be put back together and used for forming! haha

        That's a pretty neat job! I might even get a real job if there were one available like that!

                The 3D hot wire foam cutter is for sale, used with software for $50,000. We paid almost $75,000 new about two years ago.

                    Re: scratch building

                    the one that did the mclaren plug was/is a home-built kit. few companies make car sized CNC mills, so there really arent many options and those that do make some sell them to airplane manufacturers for millions.

                    what i offer is printable autocad templates that can be used to accurately build the shape of the car, then i follow up with the details.

                      Stang,

                      So I guess the question that should be asked next is can your company make foam plugs?

                        NO, they do not have the correct software, and never done any compound curves in 3D. They are breaking the machine down in order to pack it up and sell it right now anyway.
