Just started printing with the new Castable wax 40 material and I’ve experienced a massive amount of shrinkage. After a few days I’ve noticed shrinkage up to 10%. . For the jewelry industry, this is pretty difficult to work with. Ive been trying to find the sweet spot as a scale factor to offset the shrinkage. This material would be a hard No for any type of stone setting or technical design. . Also, if you dont cast in house ( or your garage ), by the time this gets to your casting house and into their schedule your piece could shrink even more. . so your Size 9 ring that cant be resized because its an eternity design is doomed because it will cast at a size 8 or less . . .
Does anybody have any suggestions or workarounds?
