A wax filament 3D printer differs only slightly from conventional plastic filament printers. It has the conventional components such as an extruder, filament feed and printing plate. 

Printing with wax is therefore practically identical in handling to the traditional plastic filament technique. The particularly good processability of wax filament also makes it possible to produce combination printers on which different materials can be processed. Alternatively, practically any conventional filament printer can be upgraded for processing wax material.

In addition to the proven layer-filament printing process, wax printing also offers “drop on demand” technology. Here, no continuous jet of liquid wax is processed, but the product is built up drop by drop. This technology impresses with excellent results but has so far only been available for high-quality printers. 

Besides the filament printer, there are also SLA resin printers with UV and laser light for wax printing. These have slightly higher printing speeds and the surface of the products becomes smoother. However, the liquid printers are much more expensive than the conventional coordinate-guided filament printers or, in the case of budget models, they have a very limited installation space. 

In this article we will discuss the benefits of wax filaments and wax 3D printers and introduce you to the best printers and filaments for them:
