Castable wax storage time limit


#1

I’m going to be doing a lot of prints in castable wax over several days and I would like to finish them all before I take them to the caster. Is there a time limit for keeping these prints around before you cast? I know about the 1% shrinkage and accommodate for that, but does not casting them immediately in any way affect the print quality or the casting? I talking days right now. If it’s months, that that would also be nice to know.

Hi @kkingcgi,
Your mileage may very, but in my experience the more time the Castable Wax print has to cure the better.
I’ve not had one sitting around for months, though…

Hope this helps,
