All types of VLM-s process include the linear heat cutting of EPS foam to generate a layer with 3D shape. The dimensional accuracy and part quality of the cut part are dependent on the thermal characteristics in the EPS foam. The thermal characteristics are determined by operating parameters such as an effective heat input and cutting angle. The objective of this study is to investigate into the influence of cutting angle on the kerfwidth and the melted length of the cut part using the numerical analysis and the experiments in generally sloped cutting with two cutting angles. In order to estimate an accurate temperature field, the transient thermal analysis using moving coordinate system, the fully conformed mesh and the heat flux model with two cutting angles is carried out. From the results of the analysis and the experiments, it has been found that the influence of the rotational angle about x-axis in which the rotational axis is normal with hotwire cutting direction is appreciably negligible in comparison with that of the rotational angle about y-axis.
