Most foam materials are well-suited for custom laser cutting and crafting. Foam is used for inserts and padding for suitcases, equipment cases, tool kits, and upholstery. Foam is even used in industrial applications including the automotive industry, packaging, seals, and even graphics. While some may cut foam for do-it-yourself applications, laser is a great alternative tool for projects that require exact precision and form-fitting to hold items tighter, safely. Laser cutting for foam is especially recommended for harder foam material that is difficult to manually cut.
