If you are looking for a prototyping process to produce a large number of parts with identical dimensions, tolerances, and mechanical and physical properties as your final component, then a prototype wax injection mold is most likely your best option. CIREX uses injected wax models based on a 3D design. Investing in a wax injection mold raises the start-up costs, but prototypes can be produced at a lower cost.
Using a wax injection mold is considered to be the normal process for creating wax models. The prototype mold consists of a single piece and allows for a quick and reliable production of the first products. After delivery, we receive feedback from the client about whether the product design requires any optimizations.

One of the main advantages of this technique is that the same wax is used as in the normal process. As a result, the costs of producing 3D models in large numbers are relatively low. In addition, this process has a high dimensional accuracy and low surface roughness. However, it requires initial investment costs to produce a prototype mold.
