    Pink Insulation Foam vs HDU vs wood for 3D images

    I Tried the pink insulation foam - not good

    I ended up with HDU - did exactly as expected - this is the way to go - proved out over and over again

    Those are cool! That's going to be quite the menangerie.

    I have to say that, although I agree its not what you'd want, the pink foam came out way better than I'd have expected it to. Frankly I expected it to be a complete disaster whereas its actually pretty good considering.

    It seems like the HDU also has the advantage of dimensional stability over time, although maybe something like good quality piece of beech (or even a clean piece of maple) might be close enough.

    I think a brand new sharp cutter would have worked better in all the cases. My cutters are getting dull and need to be replaced.

    I did cut pink foam with better results another time - but my cutters were sharper back then. They have seen a lot of use.
