I’m looking for advice on how to make super simple molds from 3D resin prints in order to create a few waxes.
My process is to design a 3D object and print it, turn it into a wax, carve it further and then cast. All work is one-off so I dont need the molds to have any shelf life beyond a few immediate wax injections.
Currently I outsource my molds. However, for a one-off wax the cost of making the mold and the turnaround time doesn’t make sense.
I don’t have a degassing chamber or a good vacuum pump. I dont have a vulcanizer. I’ve tried a few Castaldo products (Ice and the pink one), and didn’t get good results for the time invested.
Any suggestions on a mold product that 1) doesn’t require degassing 2) easy to work with and cut 3) relatively inexpensive for a one-off molds?
