Extruded Polystyrene Foam (XPS)


I am learning to use my new Emblaser 2 to cut sheet materials like paper and bristol board.  I also want to be able to cut 1-mm thick extruded polystyrene foam sheets (XPS - essentially what foam picnic plates are made of)  but am not able to find a setting that works.

Has anyone had any success cutting XPS? 

If the Emblaser 2 is simply not able to cut through thin foam sheets, I wonder why that is? Not enough power?


BTW, extruded polystyrene foam sheets are often referred to as Depron. Blue 1/4" fan fold foam is also made from XPS.
