Mick Priest has written several papers on this subject, concentrating on the
improvement of the surface finish of the supported side. From memory his
last papers were at TCT 2000 and Castcon 2000, both in the UK. His email

Subject: thermojet parts finishing

Hello list,
We are currently testing a 3D Systems Thermojet machine for wax pattern
building as an alternative to CastForm SLS. It yields quite nice results on
the not-supported surfaces, but the removing and finishing on the supported
area's makes it less "attractive". I would be very interested in sharing
experiences and tips on this. Thanks...
