Foam Board 3/16 Cut

Whats up guys quick question has anyone tried to cut 3/16 foam with a diode laser like the ortur master 2 20w

I have using a 7 watt laser by J Tech Photonics. It didn’t do good. Cutting through the paper is one thing and cutting through the foam is another. I tried using the Z Steps per Pass to keep the beam focused but that didn’t work.

The issue I encountered is the foam melts between the paper and then the bottom paper burns. I will cut but the shape is distorted and unappealing form my taste.
