Hi HP!

Hmmm... I looked all around their website and couldn't find anything like that. They do have one under development, the one at the bottom of this page, but they've had that under development for several months now.

I'm all for less expensive though! :D

SLA systems use a build style called quickcast, its honeycombed, I mentioned somewhere in another post that it may be possible to
do the same with a form of dithering or image processing?.

The casting firm need experiance with it, as its different to wax.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned B9Creator's B9R-Red. It's marketed specifically for casting, after all. http://b9creator.com/product/b9r-1-red- ... g-2-2-lbs/

Oh! Ok. Good to know. I knew Mike sent some samples out for casting back when he was doing his kickstarter campaign, but I didn't know he ended up marketing it as such. I'll most definitely try this out once I'm up and running. Thanks! :D

Bucktown Polymers has a new rinse out resin for investment casting. It does not burn out or melt out. It is rinsed out with hot water.

After the cured polymer or rinse out resin (ROR) is coated with the investment and left to dry for two hours the investment is soaked in hot water for 1-2 hours to allow the resin to dissolve. The investment green strength is strong enough to hold up to hot water rinse out or even steam rinse. The investment just needs to dry for a few minutes before being placed in the oven for firing.
