Default Foam shipping container buffers

I have a customer that makes cabs and they needed a couple containers to ship all glass doors for a fire truck cab. Neat project I got to use one of the High helix foam bits from vortex. Only thing I learned is for the best finish, conventional cut NOT climb cut. Cool project because it was a little different than cutting plastic (what I am used to cutting). The material is rigid foam (polystyrene) from home depot. (1) 2" piece and (2) 1/2" pcs. the bit I used was a 1/4" and was able to take an inch at a time @ about 260 ipm. I probably had some tool deflection but it didn't matter too much on this job.

Yet another example of an interesting application for CNC. That's a great idea to get those things shipped safely!

Very clever and well done. Did the customer provide the drawing of the cab or did you have to lay that out?

Yeah curious about how you made that.

Take a pic, scale it and trace bitmap?

I designed the fixtures to build the frames and the customer supplied what they wanted as in a complete assembly (framework/window). I did it solidworks and just created Dxf's off the model and put a little slop in there to get it in and out.
