    Since PVA is slightly cheaper, and water soluble, I feel it would be a better alternative than wax filament for support structures. That's assuming wax would even work for that purpose. But, it was never really intended for that purpose either.

    We have been working on 3mm, but as of now we are not happy with our results. We are waiting for some parts to arrive that we hope will improve things. The material is much more difficult to extrude than ABS, so we are still experimenting, and learning.

    We will be adding a 1kg option in the 1.75. This will be a lower cost/gram than the 1 lb. spools.

    The person casting the YodaBuddha sent this teaser pic today. Not completely done, but I think it looks great so far.


    This pic was just after hosing off the investment (before any polishing).

    wax filament a good design 3d print contribute to engineer industrial

    We together with Chinese Academy of Sciences supply a
    Wax filament ,only 3.0mm available
    some photo show :


    below one photo is not wax filament print made, it is metal. something that if you are a engineer doing iron mould will understand. make iron model with wax model inside then melt flow out, then make the iron one.








    we are , www.stronghero.cn
    if you want to order just contact: sales01@stronghero.cn
    $30/kg ,on roll,paypal available

    Those look nice. But, would you mind making your own thread?

    And from your pictures, your filament looks very much like plastic. What are your printing temperatures?

    sorry sir, I don't look through all this thread, sorry for my rude come in.
    it is a real wax filament, not plastic, process temperature for extruder is only 100deg.
    I think call it PE-wax filament will be more accurate, it must can be melt to flow and can be extrude to be filament ,much like plastic, a low melt point plastic

    My mistake then. It was the string pattern at the bottom of the solo Buddha that made me think that.

    Great job on the prints. What printer are you using? What resolution were the Buddhas printed at? The cast part came out well too.
