A robotic DIY styrofoam cutter consisting of one rotational and two translational axes. It cuts a variety of shapes out of styrofoam-like materials using a hot wire. This project documents the necessary hardware and software parts.

There is a crowdfunding campaign to build a new foam cutter and continue the project: http://indiegogo.com/raumschaum
Do you like to support it? Only until 12th October!
