I just had a liter of castable wax resin expedited to us for a job. Unfortunately, when it arrived I noticed that the manufacture date was almost a year ago! This means that it’s been sitting on the shelf, probably unshaken, for a whole year, and that its usable lifetime has been cut in half or more. In fact, according to Form’s own data, I really shouldn’t use it for more than 6 more months. That’s crazy!
This just seems a little excessive to me. The last tank of CW resin I purchased was already 3 months old when it arrived and had a bad rubber filler nipple (it hadn’t been cut) that I had to cut myself… I went ahead and used it since we were in a hurry, but I still felt a bit cheated out of that extra print time (jewelry is small and you generally use the resin slowly). For this “new” tank to be almost a whole year old is unreasonable for a product that cost me $350 to get here. A couple months I’d understand. Not this.
I understand that you guys want to sell your old stock of materials but this is too much.
