Filament for burnout - Investment casting

Recommended Posts

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

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
