    Which printer and technology for investment casting?

    As an inventor and hobby engineer i often have to make custom metal parts. Which would be best for investment casting, wax or special filaments? I want the lowest possible tolerances. Also, what printer can print really big things like 1x1x1 meter with low tolerances and fine detail?

      Just my two cents...
      Don't know much about investment casting other than what I learned in my manufacturing class in college many years ago.
      I only know about the use of wax. Are the special filaments a newer technology?
      I am new to 3D printing as well, but from what I have found in research is that when you get to that size print volume you are paying dearly.
      Anything less will not have the low tolerances and the detail you desire.
