How we fabricated the X-Wing Star Wars Fighter Spaceship
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
We wanted to create a 3D prop using a simple 2D machine.
We used our FCX848 CNC Hot Wire Foam Cutter (our 2 blocks machine), which is used for creating two dimensional projects.
Using 2lbs EPS foam, we cut all pieces separately, then glued them using epoxy glue.

|And...Left one as well|
|All we need now is the nose cone|
|Here is the Nose Cone glued as well|
|Front view - The X-Wing is all done ready for lift off|
Next step - We will coat the fighter with Polyurea hard coat and paint it.
Here is how it will look like once done:
Next on our list of projects - We will create the Star Wars TieFighter
