I-BEAM BLUE WAX PLA Casting Filament for 3D Printers – 1.75mm / 1kg Spool


I-BEAM BLUE WAX PLA casting filament was specifically formulated for investment casting. BLUE WAX is easy to print and burns clean. It is economical and great for most pattern castings. Unlike I-BEAM Natural PLA, the blue color of BLUE WAX helps to easily identify problems in your 3D print which can be sanded to remove any blemishes, mistakes, or visible layer lines – so you can cast a perfect part. This formula also has additives to make it easier to sand and increases surface hardness.BLUE WAX also uses a blend of higher temp PLA resins so it curls less when printing tricky overhangs. Note: there is no “WAX” in this filament. It’s called BLUE WAX because a blue wax material is often used in the investment casting industry.

I-Beam BLUE WAX PLA was developed to be used on almost any 3D printer to produce accurate and reliable prints. Even if you do not plan on using the printed parts for investment casting, BLUE WAX produces strong accurate parts in a deep blue color. A lot of people use this for prototyping as well, especially if you need this color.
