Materials Question about Foamiran

Is it safe to cut Foamiran on my Glowforge?

Hello, Carol. Glowforge support will not be able to help with anything other than Proofgrade materials and, posting in the Problems & Support category opens a support ticket. I am going to move your post to the appropriate category (Beyond the Manual) so that community members will be more likely to help.

It looks like Foamiran is a type of EVA foam, which is usually safe to cut. I would look at a Materials Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the specific material you want to use, paying special attention to the combustion products. You want to watch for things like chlorine compounds that might be toxic or, do damage to your machine.

With luck, someone else will have direct experience they can share.
