This is an easy machining closed cell rigid foam, ideal for 3D prototyping and
modelling. It can be machined at high speed with minimal tool wear. The foam is supplied in two
densities. Low density foam allows rough models and prototyping at low cost. High density foam, with
its greater structural strength and ability to hold surface detail, is ideal for finished models.
The high density foam can also be used as a plug for vacuum forming, (painting is recommended to
prevent the foam sticking to the styrene). The foam can also be used as a mould for low melting
point alloys for applications such as jewellery manufacture.
Modelling foam is the first choice material for most 3D modelling in schools.
N.B. Due to the nature of the very fine dust produced by this
material, vacuum extraction MUST be used on
the RotoCAMM, CAMM 2 and all models of MODELA and CAMM
3, to prevent ingress into bearings and potential inhalation
