Dose anyone know or is capable of milling foam from a 3d cad file,to reproduce car panels a link and picture below of what i am talking about.

Umm - me?
Well, I should say that I'm in the process of building a machine to do just that; it's not quite ready to start, so what kind of timescales are you after.
Oh, and Hi
ETA: also, is it full 3D you're after? The process I'm doing is orientated towards a block-based 2.5D, and there'll be some manual processing to put the blocks together. However, since I'm the intended market, it doesn't worry me
What are the overall sizes of the finished pieces?
Just getting my head round 3D milling at the moment using FeatureCam so anything is possible with the software, it is just the machine that creates the limitations....
Obviously we'll get a better idea when we've got a car done
Note that we did look at getting someone to do it as well - from memory, it was about £6k for a rough cut (it would need coating in clay), or £24k for a fine cut.
