We know you’ve been asking for it for a long time and we’re beyond thrilled to announce our next Maker Material: Wax!
Here are some details, the full set is on the Wax Material Page:
- Max Bounding Box: 75 × 75 × 50 mm
- Lead Time: 10 days
- Price: $10 startup, $8 per CC
- Because Wax is so fragile, there’s a higher labor cost due to handling and packaging. This is incorporated into the startup cost, which brings it up to the cast metal startup price.
- Wax will soften at 60C/140F so we’re confident we can ship it to even the hottest places.
- Wax is a Maker Material which means you can only order your own models, you can’t set them for sale.
- For now, we’ve put wax on trial for 8 weeks and we may change the guidelines based on what we learn
We’ve included a set of rules and a set of recommendations for Wax. The rules are the limits of what the printer can print, but the recommendations are based on what we’ve found can be cast successfully. We hope this helps your design decisions.
