    I like the first line on the wax website: "the most advanced formulations of machinable waxes possible."  Humble folks...

    Joey,

    Have you experimented with the printing filament?  I just ordered a spool and a few of the blocks.  Also, do you ever save and remelt the chips?  This has me thinking about how to keep waste streams separate for different materials.

    I have not tried out the wax filament. Don't even recall seeing on there honestly. Probably glossed over it because I was never looking for that on their site. Looks interesting. Wax's combination of low melt point, softness, stiffness, and slipperiness seems like it might make one or the other extreme; either crazy challenging or very easy printing.

    Thanks for the links and recommendations @Joey. I will think we may order some of the wax. 

    That wax filament is very interesting. Let us know what you think of it when you try a print @ Steve.

    ...i'm pretty sure this is the wrong place to ask this BUT, i'm just curious what types of filaments can be used with either machine?

    What i mean by that is i have experience with desktop 3D printing and a bunch of resources for filament for those types of printers . 1.75mm and 3mm diameter filaments a specific supplier/manufacturer i have in mind is polymaker or Spectrum filaments. 

    Can i use their filament in these machines? or does it not really matter?

    Again i realize this is probably a dumb question with an obvious answer. Also probably the wrong place to ask this so i'm sorry if this is out of place.
