    The Honeycomb is used in Laser cutters. They used to have one where I worked years ago.

    It’s a disposable item so if you know the right person...

    As William says Easy Composites, but you would need the 1/4Ē or possibly the 1/8Ē versions in 20mm thick, which starts getting a bit more costly.
    heres a link to their 1/4Ē honeycomb

    I looked into using the easy composites stuff, but got myself a 3d printer and have since made my own, which works rather well in blanks.

    I print it purposefully irregular, so it give it a better look in the resin.

    Permabond in this country is around 50.00 AU making its use very expensive unless you use it a lot.Some reading on this glue gave a CA definition for this glue.
