Today we’ll show you How To Custom Cut Foam In 5 Easy (DIY) Steps!
To begin you’ll need:
Play around with the layout to see what works best for your gear. Remember to leave enough space between objects + it’s important to check that the foam is deeper than your object to ensure it’s fully protected, if it isn’t you may need to rotate your object to fit.
Once you’re happy with your layout...
Grab a sharpie or felt tip pen & trace around your gear.
Pro Tip: You can pick up an extra long tip marker for precision tracing.
First, measure the depth of your blade against your gear to ensure the perfect depth of cut.
Hold your blade at a 90 degree angle for a clean cut. Carefully cut within your lines - remember, it’s easier to cut more foam out than add back in.
Keep your finger under the foam to peel out what you don’t need.
If anything doesn’t quite fit - repeat steps 3-5 as required.
If you have a deeper piece of equipment you may need to cut another layer of EPE foam for complete protection. If this is the case, simply lay your top layer of cut foam onto your second foam sheet and trace around the deepest part of your gear. Then cut & peel as required, this may take a few goes to get the exact fit you're after.
Additionally, if you’d like to create finger grips for easier access, simply place a 20cent piece where you’d like to grab your gear & trace around it.
