Solidscape 3d Wax Printer
The Solidscape 3d Wax Printer is an extrusion printer capable of printing wax molds with 6 um precision and a minimum feature size of 200 um. Molds can be melted at 100 ºC. Typical printing times are 5 min/mm^3, not including calibration and cleaning steps at the beginning of each print (~1 hr). Using .stl files for 3d model input, the helper program 3ZWorks creates a .3zs job file which can be directly loaded into the printer via flashdrive.
