Growing Pains Casting Study Now Available


With the support of the Santa Fe Symposium and MJSA Journal, another is a series of studies on the casting of 3D Printing materials and CNC milling wax has been published. The 2005 white paper “Getting Up to Speed” found that hygroscopic expansion was one of the reasons that light curing materials (photopolymers) were so problematic for investment casting. That study fell short however in addressing residual ash content and thermal expansion which was the subject of the new 2008 study for the Santa Fe Symposium

In August the MJSA Journal published an abbreviated version of this paper entitled “Growing Pains” which now available from the authors at , Techform Advanced Casting Technology in Portland, Oregon.
