devfoam application software for cnc foam cutting machine
Devfoam is application software for the Hot Wire CNC Foam Cutting machine.
Since 1998 devfoam is available applications to cut foam with cnc foam cutting machine.
Below is the feature list of devfoam application software.
We developed the devFoam series to cut Foam by a hot wire Cnc machine.
A typical foam cutting Cnc machine can move a straight hot wire suspended at its ends by 4 independent axes. In this way the hot wire can travel across a foam block to cut the material.
More complex machines can include a rotary table/lathe, and complete a more complex part.
The hot wire Cnc machines are inexpensive, silent and safe for people, making them a good choice for a computer technology laboratory.
The students can cut in a very simple manner, letters and texts, free parts, and also very complex parts at the end of their educational path.
The cut parts can also be used to build architectural scaled building, aero models components and other low cost parts.
Big software companies didn't offer special applications for foam cutting, so we started to develop them starting in 1990. We now can offer the most complete set of Foam cutting applications available on the market. This includes the special cnc application devCnc Foam, able to drive a machine with an Arduino controller (Arduino is an open source hardware system well known in educational world).
Many institutes include Aero modelling in their courses, or like to compete against other national or international institutions in special aero modelling competitions.
The devCad team offers a full set of applications to draw and machine every part of an aero modeller (or also a little full-scale airplane!), according to different building techniques like wooden structures, foam, or high tech carbon fibre molded parts.
We also developed Profili Pro, an application devoted to wing airfoils analysis, creation and improvement, well known by Universities, full scale airplane producers, wind power research companies and advanced aero modellers. Profili Pro also offers a virtual wind tunnel based on the well-known XFoil open source application, where you can analyse and test standard or customized airfoils.
