[Testing] IVI prints with wax filament
almost 2 years ago – Wed, Jun 19, 2019 at 01:45:41 AM

Dear IVIers, 

As planned, we tested wax filament last week. 

The material used is not actually pure wax but it does have physical properties that are similar to wax. According to the filament supplier, it is environmental friendly and you can use it for casting. The burnout is very clean. 

We have sent the model for casting in a factory and we will share the casted model next week. 


Below are the printing parameters for this test.  

Nozzle diameter: 0.3 mm

Printing temperature: 180℃

Layer height: 0.15 mm

Printing speed: 30 mm/s

Wall thickness: 0.9 mm

Retraction speed: 60 mm/s

Retraction distance: 6.5 mm

Infill distance: 1 mm

Cooling system: ON

L*W*H of the model: 118.8 x 69 x 84.3 mm

Printing time: about 12 hours 45 minutes
