Abstract: Rapid prototyping (RP) process is inherently performed by layered manufacturing. The surface finish of the RP part is inevitably excessively rough. In this study, aluminum filled epoxy resin is used as a filler to improve surface quality of wax injection tool fabricated by fused deposition modeling. The average surface roughness of wax patterns can be drastically reduced from 1710 µm to 276 µm. Surface roughness improvement of up to 83.85% can be achieved. Expected advantages of this technique include simple manufacturing process, low manufacturing cost, flexible process capability and good dimensional accuracy.
