High Precision Wax 3D Printer
Solidscape's S500 is designed to make the printing of directly castable parts and the creation of custom molds from wax patterns repeatable and scalable.
Solidscape introduces the S500 high precision 3D printer for ultra-accurate, directly castable wax patterns. The S500 high precision 3D printer along with new castable material, Midas, and dissolvable support material, Melt-I, dramatically shortens production time and can eliminate the need for expensive tooling. The S500 is designed to make the printing of directly castable parts and the creation of custom molds from wax patterns repeatable and scalable. The S500’s new Solidjet Technology builds a support structure of solid wax, allowing for organic shapes with undercuts, overhangs, thin walls and interlocking parts, and producing high-integrity castings with superior interior and exterior surface finish. The company is also introducing two new materials. Midas provides a clean burnout with no thermal expansion and is ideal for metal casting, including stainless steel, nickel and various alloys. Melt-I, the non-toxic, hand-free dissolvable support reduces stress points on shapes with thin walls and delicate details, enabling manufacturers to produce parts with intricate or complex geometries with confidence.
