I forgot about that one.
There might be something else with his issues, maybe.
According to the producer it is supposed to be completely ash less and have negible shrinkage.
I proposed for the poster that he do a full burnout and then saw the flask in two to inspect the inside for debris and pitting.
I’ll research other resins for casting anyway.
Within that thread, there are folks who have had excellent and consistent results with BlueCast.
There is a reason for plasticast’s long burn out cycle. It’s is designed for burning out plastics, but can be used for wax too. Be sure to use the deionized water and follow the recommended water temp. I ended up with great casts when I did EVERYTHING they asked.

Thanks Sam, will do.
It would be nice if the whole process was a bit shorter. I know people do overnight burnouts, which would be effectively ‘very quick’ - start it, go to bed, wake up, ready to pour… But I’m not willing to do that.
I wonder if anyone is working on 3D printing a material like precious metal clay. It wouldn’t be the same as cast, but might be useful for some things and would be a lot quicker.
‘Production work’ is less productive if 16+ hours is tied up with investing & burnout.
