Can't cut craft foam on Sillouette Cameo 1 Quickutz....help please

Does anyone know if I can cut craft foam on a Cameo 1? It cuts card stock but could not get it to cut foam. I was using the red cap for the blade and this seems to be for thick material. Any help appreciated. I can buy a different blade if anyone knows of the right one. Thanks.

    @lrogers12345 - there are several different types of craft foam, cheap and not so cheap. The best one is quite dense in consistency and cuts like butter in a cutter. The other type will crumble like a cake and stick to the mat when you try to take it off. Red cap blade is fine for the best one. Also several passes can help so that you are getting through the material gradually.

    Thanks. I tried the red blade with two passes but did  not work.

    I looked closely at the red cap blade, the blade hardly sticks out. It looks too short to cut anything besides paper.

    @lrogers12345 - oh good troubleshooting. It should be long enough to cut through the foam but not into the mat! Hope that works for you!

    It's not really red, more like a dark pink. Maybe it's the wrong blade. I'll buy a ratchet blade on Ebay, maybe that will work.
