Use Formlabs Castable Wax Resin to produce highly detailed jewelry by creating parts by direct investment casting and requiring minimal finishing (no post-curing required). Parts printed in Castable Wax Resin are strong enough to be used for prototyping and testing before production.

Castable Wax Resin is a material that contains 20% wax and allows you to easily print both light and bulky models. The parts printed in Castable WaxResin they are ready to cast after washing without the need for post-curing, thus offering a fast and clean burn and an optimized casting process.

Understanding the step-by-step workflow, recommendations, burnout schedules, and considerations specific to this resin is critical to successfully designing, printing, preparing, and casting models with Castable Wax Resin.

Recommended for:

  • Direct investment casting:
    • jewelry of all kinds
    • jewelery with delicate details such as filigree, pav√© geometries, thin walls and refined surface details
    • large parts intended for casting
  • Prototyping and testing of jewels

Not suitable for:

  • Finished or functional parts

Material properties

Castable Wax Resin is an acrylate photopolymer containing liquid wax to allow for a burnout process similar to traditional wax.

Prints made with Castable Wax Resin exhibit high mechanical strength in the raw state when compared to parts printed with Castable Resin, which requires post-curing. Due to this high strength, Castable Wax Resin is particularly suitable for large patterns and patterns with delicate details that require highly detailed surfaces.
