I am using the same oven I have used for 30years. It has been rewired twice. It is a 110v 12x12x10 chamber oven. I believe Satellite still makes it. I do have the bottom covered with 4 perforated ceramic panels . I do have a exhaust fan system that comes on during the burnout. Nothing fancy no magic mythical procedure. Stiil doing the same curing technique. Overnight in a simple homemade can curing device or using my ?Quantis? curing lamps. Cure over night. Next morning Microwave in distilled water for 3 cycles on high for 3 minutes per cycle.
Investing at 36/100 plasticast. Let set in the oven after investment for a minimum of 8 hours before burnout. Burnout still the same. Ramp straight up to 800* in a 3-4 hour period. Then ramp straight up to 1375*-1400* the next 2-3 hours and hold for 1 hour min. Bring back down to casting temp hold for 2 hours then cast. Nothing fancy or secret about it.
Yes still using the Emerald resin because I have had zero issues with it. I am not much on change if something works!! :mrgreen:

Lots of us are having great results with the Soluswax pro. You would be able to cut out the curing time. I cure my prints for 36 min mostly. Have done as little as 18. Just so i can handle it better. Cast fantastic. You ought to get the sample bottle and try it.
