Best bits for cutting foam?

Hi everyone,

I just received my xcarve and plan to exclusively use it to carve pink insulation foam found at Home Depot.

Anyone have experience cutting foam and what drill bits would you recommend for smooth and clean cuts?

Thank you!

Invest in a good foam cutting bit.

I cut/carved the packing styro foam that came wit with my X-Carve Pro. I learned allot - having never used a CNC machine before. It carves great and allot of cheap fun. I used the bits that came with the machine. So don’t throw out the flat sheets of packing.
