I've been doing NO uv cure (other than incidental ambient light) and following the 10 minute boil procedure for nearly 6 months and hundreds of castings.

Best results I've ever had. The process has gone from marginal to acceptable (at worst) or superb (at best). I don't control my casting as it is outsourced and the remaining issues I have are not really around burnout of resin and casting, but more around geometries that result in investment failure (ie my model design).

The paper presents a reasoned discussion with rational conclusions as to causes and effects. The fact that the work may be supported by a commercial entity and that it may, in the future, be superceeded does not invalidate it. That is how the vast majority of R&D is done.

Can you boil Solus Wax resin??
I really don't want to buy another cure box for home. I print at the store and sometimes I need to leave right after the print is done. But need to get it invested ASAP.
