I'm interested in cutting foam I was searching for some foam cutter kit having size around 30-40" x 15-20" x 15-20".

The frame (no electronics, if accepts nema 23 steppers it will be great) should cost below 1000$.

Anyone know such kits ?

Thanks

I never fiddled with a kit, most of them I don't like. I done better on drawer slides and all thread.

This being a prime example of what not to avoid. You have to see it try to work as delivered.

You are far better off building your own unit, I am writing my second book on foam cutter design.

My first unit cost $700 with steppers and controller. The first picture is one side. The other side is the mirror image.

As you can see by the second picture I have gone on to build better units.
