    I want to have a .stl produced for lost wax casting.
    Are there solutions?
    I currently build models from paper than coat them with wax for casting.

    I use masters made in FUD or FD, depending on detail required, and the jewelery casting company I use has no difficulty taking a rubber mould off them to use to create wax masters for investing in brass - I'm always doing mass-production of items, not one-offs. There has been mention in other threads of successfully using white, strong & flexible master dipped in ceramic and burned out, but this is probably no good if you need really high detail.
