I own and have been using a Form 2 printer with Castable Wax for just a few months now.
The results I get casting the Castable Wax are inconsistent (i use a vacuum casting machine, plasticas investment, I cast in sterling silver) . The same model, different flasks, same kiln, same casting process, one has perfect surface, the other one has a very porous, kill-me-now/we-cannot-use-this surface. This happened so much that it got me to the point where I would much rather prefer making moulds directly after the prints and cast directly in wax than casting the castable wax resin and not knowing what will turn out.
I remember the formlabs webinar mentioned you could do vulcanised molds directly after you print in castable wax resin. I tried with my usual rubber (165C ) after curing the prints under a UV lamp for about 20 minutes with no success (the print cracks and the mold, well, it has cracks as well . Is it really possible to make molds after these prints? If so, what am I doing wrong?
Thank you all!
