We know that our machines are accurate and precise and therefore the foam projects that we create are built to perfection.” He goes on to say that “WeCutFoam is capable of cutting almost any type of foam, acrylic, wood and metals to any size the customer requires, but our passion is definitely props. We love creating full size race cars, classical cars, boats, airplanes, tanks, dinosaurs, dragons. If you imagine it, WeCutFoam can create it.”
