DevFoam 3 by the devCad Team
DevFoam 3, the new application to cut foam with a
hot wire CNC
After almost 5 years, we are proud to release the version 3 of the well known devFoam application.
During these years we collected suggestions and requests from our users, and
finally we can offer a new version with many new and improved features. Here is a short list:
These new features may not seem like a lot, but they took
over 4 months of work, as it was necessary to invent new approaches and
geometric patterns never used before. In most cases they can
drastically change the user experience and the quality for the cut parts.
Improved import of 'dirty' geometry from external files.
Now the file, before being imported, is analyzed and chosen
cleaning and error correction methods depending on the problems encountered.
2 new methods to generate cutting files for non-tapered parts.
Previous version had only one mode available, which resulted in cutting parts
in multiple steps and without respecting the order from top to bottom. Many users
for some time they had been asking me for a new way that cut one part at a time,
starting from the highest parts.
Version 3 now allows you to achieve this, both with normal cutting logic
and grill logic.
In grid mode in particular, the program searches in the first phase
any grid in the way the parts are arranged, and cuts them
respecting the logic of this grid.
Optional application of Grid Cut also to tapered parts.
