3D WAX PRINTING

3D WAX PRINTING

3D printing with wax is used to create a precise 3D mold out of a 3D file thanks to the 3D lost wax casting technique.

3D Lost wax casting (or investment casting) is a production process. The cast process mainly allows to produce customizable jewelry, dental  or other objects of very high quality and 3D design complexity in various printer materials, such as metals.

The idea is to create concept models with 3D modeling and then 3D Print wax patterns of the desired object thanks to a wax 3D printer. Then, by adding a refractory material around this model we obtain a mold. Melting the wax filament inside the mold creates an empty space that is filled with the 3D printer’s  material, molten metal. The only remaining step is to break the mold to obtain the final object. Variable finishing options for this 3D printing technology are then available
