    Can a 3D printer do this?

    I need to cut an arc from a block of EVA foam which is 4" thick. The cut has to be smooth.

    Can a 3 d printer do this?
    Anyone have any ideas on how I could do this? Band Saw works, but the cut isn't smooth enough.

    Thanks!

    it can be done if you change the extruder out to be a laser, essentially making it a cutter / engraver. They also now make lasers that can attach directly to the extruder. You're essentially making an engraver and partial CNC machine from a 3D printer. but yes the mechanics are there.
