    I am making a model of a ring with sprues and a pouring button. This will have investment poured over and around it and then placed in a kiln to burn the positive out leaving space for casting metal to be poured in.

    What I am wondering is what would be the best material to get printed i and what kind of temperatures are we talking about being necessary?

    Thanks in advance.
