We're running it and it processes fairly well. It is very brittle though, and posts and such
break off very easily. Wax dipping it isn't the easiest for small
features. If you get the pattern or wax too hot, or keep the part
heated too long, features like posts will start to soften and lose
dimensional tolerance. It took many samples to perfect breakout
and wax dipping. But, now that we're through some of the learning
curve, we like it.
