Using an inkjet to print water based glue? Answered
I am thinking about playing with an inkjet printer to print 3d sand casting molds. To save time, I won't be too specific in my design, but I basically want to modify an inkjet to print a water based glue onto layers of sand to create sand casting molds like the 3d printer in this video:
Someone also made a crude version of what I want in this video:
My theory is that if an inkjet printer heats up the water in the ink creating a bubble of steam to push the rest of the ink out, wouldn't the same concept apply to a water based glue if you put that in the inkjet?
So here are my questions:
1) Would it be possible to put water based glue in an inkjet and have it print it?
2) Are water based glues are ok to use in sand casting molds?
Tell me what you think and thanks for your input.
