EPS foam type resin

Are there any resins that have similar melting properties as EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam?
Hoping to print objects that can be used in lost-foam casting.


Hi @Paraglyphs, we talked to our materials teammates about this one and unfortunately don’t have a direct solution for you right now. Currently lost wax, investment and shell casting are the closest applications that are possible at the moment.

Thank you for your reply. Are there any good docs or posts that you can point me at regarding lost wax, investment and shell casting and form2 prints?

Definitely! To start, here’s an Introduction to Casting with Formlabs resins and the lost wax casting guide for Form 2.

and I like these resources too that capture a broader view of casting:

Hope these are helpful for you!
