xytable1 How To:  Build a CNC hot wire foam cutter

8linx.com features a 5-part tutorial on building a CNC hot wire cutter for polystyrene foam, using parts that come from the hardware store. The original market for these CNC foam cutters was R/C airplane modelers, who use them to cut wing profiles, but in combination with lost foam metal casting techniques they could be much more versatile.
