PolyCast by Polymaker

2.85 mm , 750 g reel

PolyCast™ is a variant of the polysmooth resin (PVB) manufactured by Polymaker. It is a filament designed to produce investment patterns for investment (lost wax) casting applications. It prints as easy as PLA, burns out clean (0.003% ash residue), can be smoothed and/or dissolved with isopropyl alcohol, and cuts and sands like ABS. 3D printed patterns with PolyCast enables more complex geometric shapes than is possible with molded wax by injection molding.
