Using surface wax in the finishing process

Posted · Using surface wax in the finishing process

From another thread I came across the Aaron Thomas website and that wonderful Ronin model. Reading through the details I saw that his finishing included using surface wax. Doing some more investigation I saw some wax from Wurth, a pack of 10 sticks in different colours. I was quoted a price of £148!!

I am wondering if anyone here has used wax in their finishing and what product(s) you used and an idea on pricing. I would like to try it but not at that sort of pricing!

    £148 sounds an awful lot for surface treatment!

    Are you using ABS or PLA or maybe something else. There are very different methods for different material, like for example Acetone treatment works on ABS but not on PLA.

    EDIT;

    Re-read the question, and saw that you asked specifically for treatments regarding wax. I haven't tried any wax on my prints.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
