I went down to Michael’s today and picked up a bunch of Creatology Foam sheets to make a Halloween costume. Rather than sitting with an x-acto knife for a few hours I got to thinking I could laser them on my GF. The Spanish translation mentions “EVA”, but the English just says “Foam Sheet”. Anyone tested these in the GF?

From the use of the term “EVA“ I’d say that’s what this is. Also, the sheets look very similar to a pack of EVA foam sheets that I’ve cut with my GF.
I’ve cut ‘craft foam’ a couple of times. Most recently last week…cut out some little circles to replace the missing ‘feet’ on my son’s MacBook. I used speed 200 and power 10 to cut it…but mine was using the thinnest foam.
EVA is amazing. I use it quite often. EVA cuts like butter
I’ve used those before on my GF.

I was just working on the 1/4" stuff and it took a lot more work to cut than I would have thought. Something like 3 passes at 400/full. Although that might mean my machine needs a cleaning.
I also noticed that the kerf gets way bigger at full than at precision powers. So you might want to think about that.
EVA cuts like butter
I bet butter would be alot more messy…lol

But way more delicious.
I don’t recommend eating EVA.

If you have to eat it, butter can’t hurt–it’s like bacon and hot sauce, you can put it on everything. But, I would avoid eating it unless necessary.

Scratching that off the list of dinner options for tonight then. Honey garlic pork chops sound like a good alternative.

That’s all I need…yet
another way to get grease spots all over my clothes!
I just cut about 10 sheets of this same stuff today.
Cut- Speed: 275 Power: Full Passes: 1
Score- Speed: 400 Power: 50 Passes: 1
Cut- Speed: 275 Power: 90 Passes: 1
Score- Speed: 400 Power: 30 Passes: 1
Cuts like butter!
Also cut a thicker 10mm mat by using the 6mm settings and 2 passes.

What are you making?
Sorry, I’m curious (and a bit nosey at times). Feel free to ignore me.

(one of my favorite songs)
Friend of mine does cosplay stuff and needed a bunch of things cut for one of the costumes he’s doing.
I love how versatile the machine is!
Awesome, thanks everyone! And thanks especially for the settings. You’ll save me some wasted material.
