    Are you just cutting them or are you needing to shape them too?

    Hi there
    I instantly tuned in to this conversation as I too am looking to build a LARGE foam cutting 3 axis...I am making a foam model to use as a plug for a resin infused mold ....so it will end up doing a lot sanding and finishing anyway so surface smoothness and ultimate accuracy is a not a killer for my use....all I need is to get me within a MM or 2 from a CAD file

    How you are planning on achieving the data for your end product....are you designing your car panels on solidworks or similar or are you having a real panel measured and then importing those data points for you to recreate on your CNC

    for my purpose (large scale model making....think 6' x 3' RC models with a 200cc engine with full FPV racing) I will 3D scan quality die cast small models and then upscale them to my use ....it takes the hours of CAD work out of that side of things eh

    I look forward to hearing the voices of experience as those who know more can chime in to help you (us)

    all the best

    Taff
