    I'm a CAD guy as well and I love to see these write ups that go from conception to reality. Great work!

    Most likely, acetone. Since I just started to work with carbon fiber for myself as a hobby.

    you can make a bike frame out of carbon fiber and people were wondering how to make the tubes.... simple. Foam and then acetone once the c.f. cures.

    Okay well nevermind. I answered before I saw the link. I have no idea how you would remove the foam without destroying it. 20 pieces though.... hmm. I still would just use acetone and make a new core...haha

    Very cool product.

    I work in aerospace composites and do a lot of CAD work also. Neat to see the design come together, and then see that crazy wind mandrel as well. Very impressive that they core mandrel was reuseable.
