Can anyone tell me about hot wire cutting of EPP ? Feathercut!

I've seen it done at a flying buddy's shop. Takes a little longer to cut compared to EPS, plus there's stringy residue left on the cores and beds. Remove the strings with a handheld block of EPP, like you're sanding the part!

EPP doesn't make thin parts well from our experience, experiment before committing parts as your setup may work better.

Many thanks for the information. It will be sometime before I do the cutting. Just moved and not set up yet. Will let you know how I do.
