Can I cut foam board

3 posts in this topic

I'm wanting to cut foam board plans with my us cutter mh 871 mk2. Is there a max thickness and what is it. Your help would be very appreciated.

Oh boy. that will be tough I think. You need a backing sheet and cutters are pretty good with flexible products but stiff stuff will be hanging out there. Probably have to build a table to support things on both sides like a table saw does. How big you talking? If they are not too big you should get one of those laser engravers. They can cut fairly thick wood from what I have seen and could rip something like that out really nice.

I'm not sure exactly on the max thickness, but I know it's not much. Anything much thicker than about 2, maybe 3 layers of vinyl will be too thick to cut with a MH.
