3D printing candle wax

Never heared of it but why not. I guess you would need equipment like whats used to print chocolate. Probably the easier way would be to print a negative to cast the candle.

+1 to print a negative mould. I guess you wouldn't get the wax to cool down fast enough so it would flow away..

So if you put a candle in a bowl (say)and heat it will that give you molten wax to use in a mould? Is boiling water sufficient?
