Castable Wax resin is an SLA 3D printing photopolymer designed for direct investment casting and custom try-ons. Manufactured by Formlabs, it can be used by jewelry designers, dental professionals and engineers for the production of intricate shapes, complex geometries and detailed surfaces. It delivers polished finishes and neat edges.
Castable Wax Resin is an acrylate polymer composed of 20% liquid wax. It enables simple and clean casting free from ash or other residues. It is used to produce high-precision, intricate models with hairlike details as well as dental crowns and bridges. All products printed with the wax-filled resin are robust enough to handle. They require minimal finishing and no post-cure streamlining the casting process. Continue reading our thorough review.
