Developing new filament for FDM printers and investment casting.
Test results looking good.
What is it?
We are aware it is filament material, that was stated in the original post. What he means is what TYPE of filament? Is it a hybrid of plastics? Are you attempting to create a new type of PET?
@Paulo_Geraldes doesn’t wax have a really low melting point?
@Kevin_Danger_Powers yes but it’s not unprecedented. Wax is commonly used for investment casting.
Interesting tread so far, I’ll stay with you in line for an answer
@Kevin_Danger_Powers yes you are right. The print temperature for this material is about 100°C.

@Paulo_Geraldes that’s pretty low. Sounds like it would be pretty easy to print. I am curious to see what you can do with it. Have you had any issues with the extruder motor slipping or anything? What about filament breaking or bending?
@Kevin_Danger_Powers I was surprised of how easy it prints as well. We considered the mechanical properties of the filament as an important factor so that the filament could be used on a common FDM printer. Been testing for bed adhesion and warping… looking good.
