Currently, I am working around an hour a day on my Tumbler and Justice League bat vehicle builds.

Following a part/module/assembly building pathway that progresses through models/planning/paper, then to wood/cardboard proxy building, and finally to proxy translation into finished steel/fiberglass.

No camera ready progress at this time. vertigo

Placed a copy of this posting here for anyone who might be planning to, and/or actually building a bat vehicle.
Received an email today stating,
"I am designing a stretched and modified frame for a bat mobile. What is easiest way to make the frame more ridged and less effected by torque and bending?

The "easiest way to make the frame more ridged and less effected by torque and bending", also known as, twisting loads and vertical/horizontal bending, is to add X s and angles.

A photo-image is worth a thousand words as the one I have attached demonstrates.

A good way to figure out where to add the X s and angles is to draw out your frame on paper and then analyze the frame for points of compression, tension, and torque. Then mark the directions of these forces with arrows.

Another way to analyze the frame for the above characteristics is to build a model frame from light weight cardboard, Styrofoam, and/or balsa wood and then apply twisting loads and vertical/horizontal bending loads.
I personally like to model cut frames around 1/6th scale and parts from Styrofoam, glue them together, then apply forces.

There are also CAD and other programs that can be used to model structural forces. Some are very expensive, other with free trials, while others are free.
The learning curves for these programs are hundreds of hours and higher. vertigo

How to Cut and Shape Foam without a CNC Foam Router or other expensive Professional Tools
Part One
So, what is the best tool to use for removing the most excess waste foam material in the least amount of time.
The Hot Wire Cutter:
The bow hot wire foam cutting tool is used for hand cutting and shaping. The commercially sold units are relatively cheap, but if you have a hand conduit bender can be made yourself for a few dollars. Sculpturers of foam usually have bow hot wire cutters that range from one foot to eight feet. Nothing removes excess waste foam like a hot wire cutter.

The attached video is the best that I have seen on the hot wire bow cutter.

A simple homemade hot wire cutter and power supply that described the basics.
How sophisticated your hot wire cutter is depends on how creative you designed unit is.

Hot Wire Cutter Power Supply Basics

The basics of building a hot wire cutter (be it for foam, plastic, ice, or otherwise) are fairly simple. The goal here is to build a precision power controller so that you can heat up just about any hot wire cutter to the exact temperature you need it.

Nichrome Wire Hot Wire Parameters
Most foam products will require a wire capable of reaching 600°F (315°C) or higher. To heat 18 AWG Nichrome to this temperature range will require 6.5 amps. At 20 AWG, you need just over five amps. With a 26 AWG Nichrome wire, only 2.1 amps are required.

There are many ways to reach these Nichrome Wire Hot Wire Parameters using battery packs or 120V transformer fixed/variable controlled outputs. Thousands of power supply and hot wire setup plans and image files can be found online.

"I have tried a hot wire without much luck. Foam tends to keep melting a little after the wire passes which leaves an unpredictable cut."

A friend of mine that does a lot of work in foam for the entertainment industry informed me that controlling the tendency of the foam to keep melting after the wire passes is controlled for by:

Trial and error temperature experimentation of the wire temperature in the particular foam being used.
Using the smallest wire practical and the lowest wire temperature that cuts clean.
Most his work in done with EPS/Expanded Polystyrene and XPS/Extruded Polystyrene.

EPS/Expanded Polystyrene. This is the most common foam for hot wiring as it is strong, lightweight and cuts very easily with a hot wire or hot knife. It is usually white and is made of tiny foam bubbles. It’s often used for packaging.

XPS/Extruded Polystyrene. This is usually a denser foam that is very smooth and although the cuts are slower than EPS they are very clean and smooth. Some examples of XPS foam are Styrofoam, Owens Corning Pink board (Formular), and DOW Blueboard.

This commercial product has information on setting wire temperatures"
