Wax Jet printing

The wax jet printing has an accuracy of 25microns in XY axes and 12 microns in the Z direction. Minimum feature sizes are 350 microns. To clarify, the models are built with droplets approximately 70 microns in diameter, but can be positioned with the above accuracy. The wax models produced are relatively brittle. They are designed for investment casting. You can therefore build a model in wax and subsequently have it cast in bronze, gold, titanium, platinum, or ceramic.
