Thread: Foam , crumb collection?
Having found my favourite prototype material, Celotex, PIR insulating foam, its cheap, easily available and holds reasonable detail.
Foil peels off the foil coated faced easily.
Mistake in programming or machine crash won`t instantly snap a tool either :-)
What have noticed is the crumbs tend to collect around the spindle nose and on the side frames of the gantry.
Wondering if anyone has made electrostatic crumb attraction to get the foam chips to gather together?
