Filament for burnout - Investment casting

Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament for burnout - Investment casting

Hello everyone, I am new to 3D printing so please excuse me if the answer to my question is already well known. Many of the parts I design are being investment cast. I am wondering if there is a filament material that can be burnt out once my 3D printed part has been set in ceramic so that I can go ahead and cast it. I understand that I could just print a die and injection fill it with wax but if I can print in a material that can be burnt away CLEANLY it would save me a lot of time for prototyping.

Regards

Dan

I have come to prefer Print2Cast wax filament.  It was a little more tricky to get used to printing with than MoldLay, but the burnout was noticeably cleaner.
